    Netting with Attitude - Lorene WilsonClick to enlarge

    Level: Intermediate   

    Kit: No kit - list provided

    Techniques: Modified Netting


    Explore this technique of netting to create a basic triangle for use as earrings, a feature toggle or as a beaded bead as part of a necklace or bracelet.

    Vary the basic design using two-hole beads (Superduos) or montees for some added bling.


    See requirements list and tutor details here.


    Different ways to connect as a bracelet or as a feature piece will be shown.

    Intermediate students will cope best with this technique. The ability to work with small beads and follow and retrace a set thread path is required, but full instructions will be supplied.
    BYO light is suggested. We will supply power boards and extension cords.

    Diamond Weave Earrings - Christine MoleClick to enlarge
    Bookings open 1 May 2018          

    Level: Beginner   

    Kit Available: $15 (Opt) List provided     

    Techniques: Bead weaving 


    Diamond Weave was developed by Gerlinde Lenz and Cath Thomas. This stitch creates a flexible flat piece with parallel rows and although it looks similar to RAW, is in fact, quite different. It works best with round or oval beads and has a quite distinct vocabulary to describe the various rows.


    See specific requirements list and tutor details here.      


    Note: Different colour beads are used in each section as shown for the purpose of teaching the technique easily. Buying a couple of multi coloured fire polished strands is an easy, economical way to go.
