Summer Time on The Bead Loom!

Part one, of a two part class, "Loom University" on BEAD SOUP Campus! Actually, we are at BEAD SOUP, in Savage Maryland, where I share my skills for weaving beads, on a loom. Class projects included the cuffs, "Flip Flop Zentangle" and "Flying High". Both, of these cuffs, have been shared here, on my Blog. Scroll through to take a look. We had a very electric time!! You will enjoy these pictures


Everyone picked which pattern they wanted to create, in class. 
Each student receives both patterns, but only one in class. 
Bead Soup offers the beads in one gram packages, so the cost of supplies, for these cuff, are low


Everyone wore Flip Flops, or brought them! We saw some cute versions, not just on the loom


Everyone was given an empty pattern, as well as the flip flop pattern I created. That way, they were able to draw and create their version of a flip flop, to be included in this cuff. We got underway with weaving, but I am sure there will be surprises at Part Two Class, on Saturday.

Notice Eunice, standing. She has joined in all of my classes. Eunice prefers to stand to weave. Therefore, I had a special loom created just for her...it is taller than the others!!


Much of my instruction is offered on a large screen TV, seen here in the background.


What makes the choice of cuff patterns great, is how each student learns double the technique, as each cuff offers something different.


These are the best "thongs" of the day!! LOL Donna, French Flower Artiste Extraordinaire made these. LMAO! I love the flower topper too.


Maureen sported her version of a flip flop


Lisa was totally prepared for today. I love these.


Finally, two of us came prepared to take the heat! LOL My shirt was a gift from Caron Reid and Lisa said she bought her years ago. No whistling please!


Option one. "Flip Flop Zentangle"


Option two. "Flying High"

Next session is on August 9 & 16, 2014. Call BEAD SOUP for reservations 240-456-4568!

  3. I would love to take a class, and wouldn't mind traveling for it... Is there any chance you will ever offer a class that is two days in a row, instead of over two weekends?
