Imperial Eggs Virtual Beading Workshop with Stitchncraft Beads

Saturday 6th November 2021

Online beading workshop – One day class – £45

9am-2pm UK (GMT)
5am – 10am USA (EST)
10am-3pm Europe (CEST)

Create a 3-Dimensional Fabergé style egg using peyote stitch. This locket-style pendant can open with a hinge and hidden clasp to reveal a surprise of your choice – or be stitched closed with a chiming ball inside for a musical pendant. These dinky eggs measure just 3.5cm high when complete.

There are lots of variations for this project; besides creating a hinged locket or a closed ornament, you can choose the type of clasp you use (magnetic or beaded); whether you use Crystaletts for the centre or bicones; whether to add an embellishment or even the size of the finished egg!

Suitable for intermediate-advanced beaders. Experience of peyote in the round required.

This virtual workshop will be taught in session. 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.
