    Pagoda Lariat

    This is a multi-component project. Students will learn to make herringbone rope and chenille stitch rope using size 11 seed beads. Beaded “pagoda” shaped components will be made using superduos, size 11 seeds, 2mm crystal rondelles and petal beads, or any similar pressed glass dangle. The beaded bead is filled with a 12mm bead of the student’s choice (fire polish, pearl, etc). Students will learn how to attach the components together to form the lariat.

    Please note that project will not be completed in the time slot allotted, but students will have the skills to complete at home.

    SJBS Members Maureen Ressler & Johanna Zitto will teach

    Needle Weaving With Beads.

      
    Class Description: 
    Weaving is acknowledged as one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world.
    Needle Weaving with beads, however, is a very recent breakthrough, credited 
    to the ingenuity and creativity of fiber artist and jewelry designer Helen Banes. 
    The result of several years of experimentation, Banes elevated the process of weaving to a new art form in very significant ways. In this class students will learn how to create a free-form loom, integrate beads into the woven fabric, and practice at least three weaving techniques transferrable to other projects.

    Registrants will receive a Supply List and very reasonable price list of class materials for convenience.

    There are three colorways
    • Turquoise/Red/Gold with copper-tone metal beads
    • Lavender/Lime/Cocoa with silver-toned metal beads (pictured above)
    • Cranberry/Peacock/Cream with silver-toned metal beads (pictured above)
