Peyote with a Twist 101

June 18, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Peyote with a Twist 101

The “Peyote with a Twist” technique developed by Gerlinde Lenz is one of the newer techniques that is very popular in beading today. The finished piece will look very similar to bead crochet without all the headaches of crochet. In this workshop we’ll begin to learn the basics of the stitch using one main color of a size 11 seed bead and one contracting color to create a simple stripe. This is the version shown in Jill Wiseman’s video.

If you enjoy making this piece, we encourage you to also join us to continue working with the technique, next time reading from a grid to create a beautiful geometric design. We have to warn you — this one is very addictive!

Date & Time:  Tuesday, June 18, 2:30-4:30  |  Difficulty Level:  Intermediate Level 1  |  Technique:  Peyote with a Twist |  Instructor: Judy

Ready for the Next Step in Bead Weaving?

This is the perfect class for you! Intermediate bead weaving classes expand on the techniques you’ve learned in the beginner classes and take you to the next level. Some bead weaving experience is necessary to take an intermediate level class. Classes have a maximum of 10 people so that everyone gets plenty of teacher time.

We ask that you always use supplies from Laura’s Beads when in our beading room. Thank you!

New to bead weaving?

Start by attending some of our beginner bead-weaving classes and learn everything you need to know about bead weaving. Classes are small, so you’ll have plenty of teacher time. You’ll familiarize yourself with the terminology of bead weaving so you’ll start to understand how to read patterns and practice various stitches and techniques. In no time at all you’ll be ready to move up to intermediate level!
