In this class from our partners at Interweave, Tammy Honaman will go bead-by-bead through five common bead weaving stitches, including peyote stitch, brick stitch, square stitch, daisy chain and right-angle weave. You will learn which tools and materials to use to produce the best work and basic fundamentals that will allow you to create any piece.
Meet your instructor, Tammy Honaman.
Review the materials you will need throughout the class.
Tammy teaches you some of the fundamental of bead weaving. Use these tricks throughout your new beading career!
Get started with the most basic stitch: even-count flat peyote
Based on ladder stitch, brick stitch can create triangles, rectangles, even tubes
Square stitch is a great way to finish projects with a zigzag edge, such as peyote.
Daisy chain is great on its own, or used to create a focal piece for other projects.
Right-angle weave, or RAW, is Tammy's all-time favorite stitch. Learn why.
Tammy displays many of the wonderful finishing options available. Let these options for clasps, loops, and edges inspire you to create your own design
Tammy reviews tips and tricks when working with these fundamental stitches. She'll discuss adding more thread and testing color swatches.
