Kumihimo and Bead Crochet - Level I - Judy Kelly
This class focuses on teaching Kumihimo for use in multi- media projects, with the option to learn Bead Crochet if desired. Those choosing to focus on Kumihimo will have time to tackle additional high-level projects. Bead Crochet or Kumihimo may be used as either a major or a minor element of your unique designs. You will learn how to load your thread with combinations of patterns that flow together within a single project, and how to incorporate your visions within these designs. Some, more difficult, designs will incorporate different bead sizes, as well. Most students will complete four to five unique projects. Lab fee covers all materials required to complete in class, up to five projects which includes lampwork beads and other unique elements that we incorporate into these lovely mixed media projects. All lampwork focal pieces are created by Judy who also teaches Lampworking. You will leave with a firm understanding of how to create your own, unique works of art. NOTE: THIS CLASS IS A PREREQUISITE FOR JUDYS KUMIHIMO LEVEL II CLASS. STUDENTS MAY TAKE LEVEL I IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY LEVEL II. THESE CLASSES ARE TAUGHT IN A CONSECUTIVE TWO WEEK PERIOD.
