Astronomical Clock Virtual Beading Workshop with Stitchncraft Beads

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th October 2021

Online beading workshop – Two sessions spread over two days – £45

5pm – 7.30pm UK (GMT)
12pm – 2.30pm USA (EST)
6pm – 8.30pm Europe (Central European)

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.

This virtual workshop will be taught in two 2.5-hour sessions. Materials are not included in the course cost. This class is being hosted by Stitchncraft Beads. Please see below for full details – you’ll need to register via the bead store, see the button below.

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.

All booking is handled by Stitchncraft Beads so please direct any questions regarding availability to the team there.
