Sunday 28th June & Sunday 5th July 2020 (Two sessions spread over two days)
10am – 12 noon UK (BST)
5am – 7am USA (EDT)
6.30pm – 8.30pm Australia (ACST)
This virtual workshop will be taught over two 2-hour sessions. You will be sent a PDF instruction booklet upon booking to print at home.
Have you always wanted to learn how to capture rivolis and other stones using beads so that you can use them in your beading designs? I’ll show you how to use peyote stitch to bezel around rivolis using both peyote stitch and right angle weave (RAW). We’ll create a bezel for a 14mm rivoli using peyote stitch and then move onto capturing a larger 18mm rivoli with RAW.
Together we’ll discuss how you can use the same techniques to bezel around larger or different shaped stones and easy ways to embellish your work for maximum effect! I’ll be offering plenty of design tips and sharing my beading knowledge with you along the way.
Suitable for beginner beaders upwards. No previous experience necessary.
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.
Materials not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking along with the instructions. You will need:
- 14mm round rivoli
- 18mm round rivoli
- Size 11 and 15 seed beads
- Size 11 Miyuki Delicas
If you are ordering beads from an online bead store for this project be aware that First Class is taking up to a week in some instances to arrive. I’d recommend opting for Special Delivery where available.
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 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.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the session and the fact you will be sent the full instructions 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 you will be sent you a recording of the class you have missed. 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!
