Polaris Star

November 12, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Polaris Star”

This 3-dimensional star with 10 points is created quite a bit differently than the traditional “warped square” stars many of you have stitched previously. It still uses a combination of peyote and herringbone stitch, but you’ll be creating a series of triangles that all zip together cleverly to create this very unique bauble!

This piece is designed by Ella Des and is available for purchase on her website www.ellad2.com.  Ella has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Circular peyote with herringbone

Difficulty Level: Advanced
This project is for experienced beaders ready for a challenge!

$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.

This policy also applies to registrants using a pre-paid multi-class package to avoid having the class deducted from your total. (Please note that due to the limited staffing we have at this time, we will not be able to do reminder calls before all classes, so be sure to put your dates on your calendar.)
