Beginning beaders and those who have had trouble learning Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW) this class takes you through changing direction, connecting, and edging a strip of cubes!
This 1.5 hour bite-size lesson will walk you through thread direction, tension, and manipulating a row of Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW) units into a closed shape.
CRAW is a dynamic stitch that is used in millions of bead weaving patterns, but it can be hard to see and understand without repeatable direction and plenty of practice. Beaders should have a general understanding of how to bead with needle and thread, and be ready to take on a dimensional project. Bring your own materials. I recommend using 8/o Japanese seed beads when learning this stitch – they are easier to see and hold. Once you get comfortable with it, scale the shape down to 11/o’s.
This class goes through basic construction techniques and will get you more comfortable with CRAW. Use shapes as earrings, link several together for a cool necklace, and try other shapes to master the stitch; your options are endless!
The pattern includes detailed color pages, full of illustrations, and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the project. Though the pattern is written for a beginning beader with limited knowledge of CRAW, it is the THIRD lesson in this series. You should be somewhat familiar with how to start CRAW by making the first cube with little to no instruction.
You will need:
About 5 grams 8/o Seed beads and some 11/o seed beads for embellishment (optional)
8 lb Fireline
