**This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**
Join instructor, Chris Eisenberg for this bracelet technique that was the beginning of her love affair with all things beading . . . hence the name, Genesis! This stitch is based solely on the spiral stitch which is an absolute staple of bead weaving and a pattern that offers countless variations to continue building your skills. As always, we will begin session one with a review of the basics of beading ~ setting up a space, tools needed and best practices for beaders. The basic pattern of the spiral stitch will be presented and practiced for the duration of the session.
Students will reinforce and gain comfort with this technique by completing an assigned amount of the project during the week before the finishing class. Session two will focus on problem solving and finishing techniques. Variations of spiral stitch will be discussed for further inspiration!
Kits will include everything needed to make your bracelet. Please verify your mailing address when you register.
Students will need to supply scissors and a tape measure.
This class will be conducted via Zoom. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial. Please make sure you have the most current version of the Zoom software.
