Learn the basics of flat and sculptural beadwork in this beginner’s level workshop. Using colorful glass seed beads, we will focus on the peyote stitch, (an off-loom weaving technique) including increasing, decreasing, tubular peyote, and others. Students will be provided with a beginner’s kit including beads, needles, threads, beeswax and pattern charts.
