This virtual workshop will be taught over two x 2 1/2 hour sessions. You will be sent a PDF pattern upon booking to print at home.

Experiment with the possibilities offered by Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW) in this advanced level project for a dramatic pendant or hanging ornament with moving parts.

Together we will create rings which move independently around a central bead. There is a choice when it comes to the final outer ring; whether you choose to use 2-hole Czech 2-hole Triangle beads or a slightly easier option of texture with Pips or Mini dagger beads.

The possible design variations for this project are numerous and it’s a great one for growing your confidence with CRAW. If you have already taken my Celestial Armilla or Cogs of Time class you will enjoy exploring the possibilities opened up with Astronomical Clock.

Some experience of CRAW is a must for this class. You can use Toho or Miyuki beads.

Online Workshop Requirements

The class will be taught using Zoom online meeting software. This will allow you to see me and your fellow classmates (you will have the ability to mute or turn off your camera at any point if you wish). We can also share photos as we work.

You will need a computer/laptop, smartphone or tablet with camera and audio capabilities. You will need to download the free Zoom software or app to your computer, phone or tablet in advance of the meeting. Full details of how to join the online meeting will be sent to you upon booking. The app/software is free and you do not need to create an account to attend the class.

Workshop Materials

Materials are not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking. I have the clock beads available here in a choice of three colours. All other supplies can be purchased from Tanzee Designs (UK) or Jill Wiseman Designs (USA) if required. Old Bicycle Shop stocks the lovely etched Triangle beads. You will need:

  • Size 8, 11 and 15 Japanese seed beads in a selection of colours
  • 3mm firepolish beads
  • 3mm glass pearls
  • 3mm crystal bicones
  • Clock bead or 16mm coin bead
  • CzechMates 2-hole triangles or Mini Daggers or Pips
  • Size 8 Toho Demis or 3mm x 1.3mm Miyuki Spacer beads
  • Assorted beads, charms and tassel to accessorise

About the class

Class sizes are kept small so you can be guaranteed plenty of help and support. I will have two cameras in use during the class so you will be able to see my demonstrations up close in high definition as well as my face! There is a messaging function in addition to the meeting audio as well so plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss the project. My classes are fun and informal with plenty of opportunity for discussion and general chatter.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the session and the fact you will be sent the full pattern upon booking refunds cannot be given if you are unable to make one or both of the sessions. If you cannot make one/both of the sessions I will try to swap you to another date for the same project if available but this cannot be guaranteed. I am always available if you have any questions on the project after the workshop.

If you have any questions please contact me. I’m looking forward to seeing you!
