Intro
In this 4-week bead-weaving workshop, students will create a chain-necklace made of a bead mesh in CRAW (cubic right angle weave). Students will have the opportunity to learn and experiment with the basics of this rather meticulous beading technique, and to complete their work at home at their own pace, following instructions on a PDF file provided by the instructor.
Given a palette of 6 colors, students will experiment with color and texture combinations, based on personal taste, under the instructor’s directions. After building a few chain links, students will be guided on how to add decorative elements (resin spheres) to make their necklace more dynamic: they will learn how to nest spheres inside chain-links, and break the symmetry of a link pattern.  

Finally, students will be instructed on how to add a sphere hanging off a chain link, to function as a loop closure, for necklace functionality.
Some experience necessary: Basic bead weaving (any technique)

Students will need an internet connection as this class will be taught online via Zoom.

Dates and hours:
April 26 -  May 17, Tuesdays 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Cost: $ 205 (includes a $ 25 materials fee)
