Sunday 23rd & Sunday 30th August (Two sessions spread over two days)
Online Beading Workshop
6pm-8.30pm UK (BST)
1pm-3.30pm USA (EDT)
This virtual workshop will be taught over two 2 1/2 hour sessions. You will be sent a PDF pattern upon booking to print at home.
Create this dramatic peacock pendant design using crystals and seed beads. You’ll bezel a large Swarovski Oval stone with seed beads and right angle weave, then use herringbone and freeform beading techniques to embellish and create sparkling feathers decorated with Swarovski beads. Turn your peacock into a brooch or pendant.
Most suitable for advanced beaders. Previous experience of right angle weave is required.
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.
Materials not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking along with the pattern. You will need:
- 1 x 30x22mm Swarovski Elements Oval 4127 Fancy Stone
- 4mm Swarovski 5000s (rounds) – or similar
- 1 x 8 or 10mm Swarovski round or pearl
- Size 11 and 15 seed beads
Tanzee Designs (based in UK) stocks all of the materials needed for this project. If you can’t find what you are looking for then do give them a ring and they will be able to help you match colours and find suitable swaps.
I recommend choosing Special Delivery to ensure that your beads arrive in time due to the delays with Royal Mail at this time (UK only). 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.
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 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 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!
