Beadworking Instruction

Service Provider: Fawn Bolton

The purpose of this class is to learn the basics of beading, from flat stitch to lazy stitch. We will start on a simple project such as earrings or a keychain to get the technique down. Once that is complete, we will move on to another project such as beaded cuffs, headband, or hair ties.
