Loom Class 1 “Oh My Loom”
August 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Beading on a Loom “Oh My Loom”
In this class you’ll learn how to use the Beadalon Jewel Loom. You’ll be starting with a basic diamond design using Delica beads, as well as S-lon cording for extra color and texture. Once you learn how to use a loom, you’ll have the skills you need to make any of the vast array of loom patterns that you’ve seen online.
Please note that this class will not cover how to do the extra embellishment or macramé closure. These will be covered in an optional, separate class offered one week later: “Class 2: Embellishment and Macrame Closure”. If you choose not to take Class 2 to learn these finishing techniques, the instructor will show you how to simply end your threads and put a slide closure onto your finished loom bracelet.
This is an original design by Rose Kasallis. A tutorial will be distributed on the day of class.
Instructor: Rose Kasallis
Technique: Beading on a loom

New to beading? 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 jewelry making and where applicable, start to understand how to read patterns.
