DNA Spiral Rope Workshop

October 22, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

DNA Spiral Rope Workshop

This stitch workshop will teach you how to create a beaded spiral rope. There are many types of spiraling techniques, however this particular spiral is often referred to as a “DNA” spiral because of the loops all rotating around a beaded core. This soft and flowing necklace is wonderful for combining with your beaded pendants, or to simply make a casual bracelet.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Spiral rope with a core

Difficulty Level: Beginner
New to bead weaving? This is the perfect class for you! Beginner classes will teach you all the basics; no previous experience is necessary. These classes are small in size so you’ll get plenty of teacher time. You’ll begin to familiarize yourself with the terminology of bead weaving and start to understand how to read patterns.

Cost Options

$15 Single class price

$10 Multi-class package price
Multi-class packages are $80 for 8 classes. Packages are good for a 6-month period, starting from the date of first use. Packages can be used on most of the classes offered, however specialty and guest instructor classes regularly priced higher than $15 do not qualify.
