*Class is for Advanced and Intermediate Beaders!*
This workshop is tailored to those who have experience with herringbone stitch (flat and tubular) and are ready to use different size beads – including 15/0, can hold a tight tension, and can read a pattern.
Enjoy Spirals?! This versatile pattern works by creating shape with alternating bead sizes in a particular manner using tubular herringbone stitch. Along the way, we will also add and connect spiral ends with alternating pearl or round beads that appear to float inside the rings.
This 3-hour online workshop will get you started on making this unique and beautiful design and give helpful tips on how to seamlessly add thread to your beadwork, hold tension, and end your piece.
You will need to purchase a Whirly-Gig! downloadable PDF pattern, and bring your own supplies to class OR a project kit with all the materials included (still need your own thread, needle, and scissors) to bead along with the group.
A ZOOM link for the class will be emailed to all registrants 3 days before class. At class time, just open your email, click the link, and join the workshop!
