Russian Spiral – Beginner
January 19 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
This Stitch Workshop will teach you how to create the beautiful and popular Russian Spiral. You can make a necklace or a bracelet, but once you get the hang of it and see how easy it is, you’ll probably want to make both! The necklaces are wonderful for combining with your beaded pendants. There are many variations you can play with once you learn this stitch, using a variety of bead types for endless looks.
A tutorial will be distributed to participants at the beginning of class.
Technique: Russian spiral
Difficulty Level: Beginner
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.
