Weaving Classes Offered at NCBA Convention March 2014

It is so exciting every year, North Carolina Basketmaker's Association Convention!

This year, it is March 13 - 16, 2014.

I am teaching 3 classes, and I would love to have you in them!

All three are woven wearables. 

I thought you might like to see them close up, it is so hard to see what they look like in the brochure!

 Corseted Heart Necklace  
THMB35Thursday, 4-6 pm
2 hours, Beginner $26

Weave beautifully understated waxed linen knotless netting over a hand crafted, wonderfully irregular pottery heart. Results in an exquisitely simple and elegant necklace, perfect for Valentine’s Day, bridal, and gift giving. Color choices  This necklace was featured in the September issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine!

Hummingbird Locket  
Thu MB36, Thursday 1-3pm
2 hours, beginner, $35
So adorable, and fast and easy!  Craft wire is used to randomly weave teeny tiny bird’s nests, with gorgeous natural freshwater pearls masquerading as eggs.  Then nestle your tiny creation in natural lichen to make an adorable locket terrarium.  Locket may vary. Students may want magnifier and/or personal light. 


 Lace Window Necklace

2 Hours, All Levels, $28
Learn to weave a beautiful layered weaving in a pottery window of your choice. Many color choices available.  Finish off with beading to make a striking lacy statement necklace!  Light and magnifier recommended. Bring small sharp scissors.
