INTRO TO LOOM BEADING
SUN – MAY 28 and JUNE 4, 2023 – 12:00PM to 4:00PM EDT
Students will learn how to turn a simple wooden picture frame into a bead loom. The loom will be used to make a bracelet with minimal warp ends to sew in when the project is finished.
The first day of the class, students will learn how to thread their simple frame bead loom, as well as tips and tricks on how to complete bead rows.
The second day of the class a week later will address any difficulties students encountered during work on the project at home. Tips for sewing in thread ends, and creating beaded closures will be covered.
