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.
Create a self-supporting beaded bottle with separate lid inspired by beautiful perfume bottles I discovered in a museum on my travels in Czech Republic.
This project uses peyote stitch to construct a rounded rectangle shaped structure with a clever decreasing technique to finish the top and create the bottle’s neck. We will complete the ornament with a removable lid and add decoration with a bezelled cabochon.
You will have options when it comes to the embellishment. I have used an 18mm cabochon for this sample shown here. I created this using a clear glass cabochon painted with nail varnish. You could use any 18mm cabochon, or even a 14mm or 16mm cabochon.
The embellishment also makes a pretty pendant and the pattern includes instructions for creating a miniature version of the bottle too.
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 are not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking. Please be aware that there are still delays on shipping at this time particularly in the US so factor this time in to your bead ordering.
You will need:
- Size 8, 11 and 15 Miyuki seed beads
- 1 x 18mm or 16mm glass cabochon
- 3mm pearls or round glass beads
- Nail varnish (optional, if you wish to decorate your own clear glass cabochon)
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!
