Make a new piece of beautiful beaded jewellery each week with a professional finish

About the course

The beginner/refresher class allows students to get their feet wet. You will start with basic techniques in stringing, beadweaving, wirework and kumihimo forming a solid foundation for advancement.

Each week builds on the last with projects that can be completed during the 2 hour class. You will develop the skills needed to read a diagram or pattern, follow written instructions and work successfully with colour.

About the Tutor

I have been making jewellery using Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and sterling silver for over 35 years. Although my BSc degree is in Mathematics, I hold a teaching qualification in adult education. I have taught in the UK since 2003 for Darlington Borough Council, CCAD - Middlesbrough, The Art Centre - Darlington and King James Academy - Bishop Auckland.
