INTUITIVE BEADING

 

Strengthen your creative confidence and demystify the challenge of intuitive beading! The outcome of the three part workshop will be a small beaded piece that you can turn into a brooch or put it in a frame.

“What is intuitive beading?” you ask. It is working without a pattern sometimes even without a plan. It is a spontaneous approach to beading – one lets one’s instinct guide them. Some describe it as “working from your heart rather than from your head”. We have some “tricks” we think will help you shed some of the constraints you may feel.

Date option #1 - Wednesday January 23rd, 30th & February 6th - 1:30 to 3:30pm
Date option #2 - Saturday January 19th, 26th & February 2nd - 9:30 to 11:30am

Cost $125.00 – includes most supplies although you might want to supplement from your stash after the discussion on the first day.  You might have a special bead, a sentimental piece of jewellery that is broken, a unique button, a cabochon, a shell. Bring them in and we will see how to incorporate them. 

Saturday January 26th - 1:30-4pm - $50
Tila Star Bracelet - Create a star pattern bracelet using Tila beads and 11/0 seed beads. A pair of earrings can be made to match the set.
