Although I’ve launched my six pointed star beaded box to celebrate International Beading Week 2020, the online class will be available all year round. So, you can join up at the launch and enjoy an early bird discount. Or, save yourself until later.
Let me tell you a little more about this project and the online class format.
About the six pointed star beaded box
This beaded box contains 7 separate compartments, each with a lift-off lid.
You will be using delicas to make your beaded box. I chose to use size 10/0 because I love working with that size for beaded box projects. But this will work equally well with size 11/0s. Or, you can also use AIKO beads if you prefer that brand of cylinder bead.
You can mix and match the colouring. My box is inspired by the colour wheel. So, you could also use that idea. Or, you might prefer to try something completely different. The design will work brilliantly in all kinds of colour ways. Hopefully you’ll be able to see a few samples from other students on the class.
This is a project for intermediate to advanced beaders. The individual boxes are pretty simple to make, but you may find some slightly fiddly bits when you come to put it all together. If you want to try a smaller project to test your skills first, then I recommend this beaded box – it is actually the first step in the six pointed star beaded box anyway.
You’re going to be working in Peyote stitch. It will be helpful if you have some previous experience of tubular and circular Peyote, but it’s not essential. I’ll be guiding you through everything in the class. So, let me explain how that works.
How does the online class work?
Pretty much like any normal beading class, but with one exception. The exception is: you get to work in your own time, at your own pace. So, you can work wherever you feel comfortable. You might want to do this in one long session, or you can easily split it into several short sessions. Just bead whenever you are ready.
You still get to watch me demonstrate all the techniques. I do this on video. So, you can watch over and over, pause, and do whatever you need to understand what is happening.
I still give you a full PDF tutorial that you can download. So, that gives you written instructions and diagrams to show thread paths, photos showing assembly, etc.
Then, if you have questions or get stuck, you can just ask for help. You can include photos of your work so I can see exactly what is going wrong. You can also interact with other students on the class. So, you can help and encourage one another as you go.
Hopefully, all that sounds good, and I look forward to seeing you in the class and sharing this beautiful project. Just click here to enroll now, then start beading whenever you’re ready.
