The Whimsical Bead

Pictures in Maille

$50.00 $120.00

Join Karen in a brand new, exciting workshop where you will learn how to create ‘pictures’ within your chainmaille design using inlay techniques.
Students can choose whether to create a small hanging (which could also be used a brooch) or for the adventurous, a coin purse. Both projects will be covered on the day so simply choose on the day what you’d like to create.
There will be 3 different ‘picture’ designs available on the day.
There will also be extra kits available for purchase for those who may wish to take the alternate project home to create.

Did you know you can also treat this session as a Tutored Access or Catch Up Session.
Did you miss one of Karen’s previous seed beading workshops? If you let us know upon booking you can use this session as a catch up one (one project per workshop).
Perhaps you’ve got a kit or a project that you’re stuck on? Let us know upon booking and you can bring it along for Karen to help you out with.  Maybe you just want to spend the day creating with other beaders? That’s no problem too!

This class will run with a maximum of 12 students
