WI Member: From £360.00
Non Member: From £400.00
Plunge yourself into the wonderful world of bead weaving. Using needle and thread combined with a beautiful selection of beads, learn how to create light, comfortable pieces of jewellery with a luscious, lacy effect. This course is suitable for beginners and those wishing to add further techniques to their repertoire.
Three or more pieces of work will be created by you to take or wear home. The emphasis is on necklaces, bracelets and bangles, however, you may have ideas about a decorative element on your own project which can be explored. Lacy weaves such as ogalala lace and beaded netting (both tubular and flat), will be employed plus variations providing completely different designs. Lots of bead shapes and sizes will be used but can be subsituted for larger and smaller beads to increase or decrease the overall scale of your pieces. This course is suitable for beginners and improvers.
Sally Boehme has been making beaded jewellery for over 20 years and teaching for 10 years. She also uses polymer clay, handmade felt, fabric and wire in her work.
