what you will learn-

In this class you will not be doing one project but learn six different essential professional threading techniques, as examples on a small scale. The one-day class covers threading, knotting and attaching fasteners securely- methods which you will be able to adapt for working with beads of all types: ancient- handmade- stone- pottery- glass- wood -natural or ethnic, using a range of the best stringing materials. Then you will have a choice of the most suitable techniques for each bead jewellery project, whether repairing or designing a completely new piece.

Contact me with your preferred date, we will confirm your class payment and I will send you directions.


Looking forward to seeing you
