LeafyCA18-Leafy
Charlene Abrams

This version of the corralling technique uses seed beads to make airy, voluminous accents or jewelry. Longer lengths of corralling can form a bracelet or necklace, or shorter, bushier lengths can be wonderful accents on a simpler item.

Learn a variation of the incredibly versatile corralling technique to make frothy leafy elements that can be used as the focal of a necklace, as the ends of a lariat or as stunning earrings.

Beading mats, scissors and thread conditioners available for use during class.

Chunky Caterpillar BraceletCA19-Chunky Caterpillar Bracelet
Charlene Abrams
Saturday PM

Make this tactile, textural bracelet as full as you like by simply stitching back and forth a few times - stop when it looks good to you (the photo shows four passes).

This straightforward fringing technique can produce a variety of effects depending on the beads being used from tiny seed beads to larger seed beads to shaped beads - they all have their place, and the stitching is uncomplicated enough to be within everyone's grasp, but plenty of fun even for more experienced beaders.

In this class we will be using primarily large seed beads, both round and cubic, with small seed beads used as accents only.

Beading mats, scissors and thread conditioners available for use during class.

Crochet SnowflakesMH05-Crochet Snowflakes
Michael Hattori
Saturday PM

In this day and age of technology and Tarzhay (Target), handmade gifts are a rarity, and people LOVE getting them. What is more special than a handmade Christmas ornament that will last for decades. Crochet snowflakes have been around forever, and although they look terribly complicated (and some are), they are actually pretty simple. Once you get the hang of it, you can make an elegant 2" snowflake in less than 10 minutes! AND, best of all (get ready for this!): GUAGE DOES NOT MATTER! Yes, after all those years of being beaten around the head to make your gauge, here it really doesn't matter - a little bit bigger or smaller makes little difference. But be careful, you will get addicted and will be making snowflakes everywhere you go, till they are coming out your ears. But that's OK, because you can never have enough - once people see them, everyone wants them.

Class Fee: $20 Includes Basic instructions for several different snowflakes; starch for stiffening, clear fishing twine, envelope for carrying your snowflakes home.
Level: Advanced Beginner - Basic knowledge of crochet stitches; the more experience you have, the more challenging the snowflake you can try - I will have patterns for many, many different ones, from dead simple to very challenging.
Equipment: #10 crochet cotton, at least one 2.8 oz ball in any color you like - white is traditional, but they look great in other colors, too. Bring as much and as many as you like. Crochet hook Size 6 (1.75 or 1.8mm), good scissors.

Daisy OrnamentCA20-Daisy Ornament
Charlene Abrams
Saturday Eve

Use two sizes of seed beads and dagger beads to stitch a delicate netted cover for a glass ornament.

Students will learn two variants of a daisy chain: the first produces a closely-spaced chain of daisies to form the collar of the ornament, and the second more airy variant will be used to make a bead-netted drape, terminating in dagger beads.

Everyone will start by making the same daisy-motif collar, and then students can choose to make either a less ornate version of the drape that does not include the daisy motif although still using the same beads, or the drape with scattered daisies as pictured.

Beading mats, scissors and thread conditioners available for use during class.
