Brique Bands

October 16, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Brique Bands

These bands are a fun, quick little project with several variations included in the pattern, so you can be creative. Make a Halloween piece (looks like candy corn!), a patriotic piece, or any other color combination that makes you happy. This is the perfect project for a beader who has taken a few beginner classes and would like to try an easy intermediate-level piece.

This piece is designed by Deb Roberti and is available for purchase on her website:  Deb has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.

Instructor: Laura

Technique: Ladder stitch with connections

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.

Cost Options

Please note that these prices do not include materials. Material costs vary.

$15 Single class price

This class qualifies for our promotion, so if this is your first time joining us in the beading room, be sure to let us know when you register and we’ll waive the fee.

This policy also applies to registrants using a pre-paid multi-class package to avoid having the class deducted from your total.
