Peyote Boot Camp: Even-Count Peyote

May 9, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $45.00 - Cdn $50.00 +Kit fee: $25, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Peyote stitch creates an amazing fabric of beads using only beads, a needle and thread. If you have been intimidated by peyote stitch in the past or are a first-time peyote learner, this class is for you! It is also an excellent class if you need a refresher or need to learn the stitch to take one of Jean Powers’s upcoming classes.

This four-hour class with Pamela Kearns will begin by using large cylinder beads, giving you the chance to learn the stitch before progressing to smaller size 11 delica beads. Along the way, you’ll learn how to read peyote patterns.

The class project will be to create little beaded beads that you can use as earrings or as focal beads. As part of the kit fee, you’ll receive two wooden cubes, access to some delica beads, and several patterns that will fit around the cubes. Colour choices will be available. A kit is required; see details below

Make your learning complete by taking the Peyote Boot Camp: Odd-Count Peyote on May 23. Save $5 on each class; you must register for both classes at the same time.

Skill level: Beginner

Prerequisite: Experience with seed beading or working with a needle and thread will be beneficial but not required.

Technique: Even-count Peyote, how to read peyote pattern, how to zip up peyote to create tubes

Bring to class: Magnification if required; size 10 or 11 beading needle; scissors
