June 21 Class | Explorations In Peyote: Petals and Leaves

Small yet intricate shapes evoking Petals and Leaves
The ancient stitch of Peyote yields many rewards as it can mimic and evoke shapes from nature.  Whether it is playing with odd or even count stitches, simple techniques can allow for more embellishing and fringing elements.  These techniques were perfected and inspired by the master bead weaver and teacher Laura McCabe and can be modified with practice.

Participants will learn how to properly set up and hold the bead work along with quickly building up these foundational design elements using cylinder and seed beads. You will also see finished pieces that incorporate these elements to trigger new articulations for future objects of adornment. These pieces can be added to other projects, however, you will also be able to incorporate these elements in a future class. 

Date:  Tuesday  June 21
Time:  6:00 PM- 8:30 PM
Level: Beginners / Foundational
Technique: Peyote
Venue:  Jabriya Block 9 Street 6 House 13 (Side Basement Entrance)
