Bead Crochet Bracelets class

A bracelet made with Mill Hill beads.
Do you need a quick project for the holiday gifting season? Or maybe bridesmaids' gifts? Do you have leftover beads from beaded shawl projects? Do you love jewelry? Come learn how to do bead crochet. Yes, this uses a crochet hook, but it is only a chain stitch and a slip stitch. Easy.

Skill level is beginner.

½ day workshop.

Students receive a handout in booklet form. We will make a chunky bracelet in class.
Class project. Large scale for ease of learning.
Optional materials fee: $1 for a set of 200 pony beads in 5 colors. Students may also supply their own pony beads. Note: Students need the materials ahead of time in order to do the homework.

Homework for a 2-hour class: String all 200 pony beads in order A-B-C-D-E repeat. Example here.
Optional homework for a 3-hour class: String all 200 pony beads in order A-B-C-D-E repeat. This is not strictly necessary for a 3-hour class, but will give you more time to crochet and improve your chances of finishing the bracelet during class time.

200 pony beads in 5 different colors (40 each each)
8-10 yards of worsted weight yarn
Size E, F, or G crochet hook
Blunt tapestry needle
Optional: Crafting Conundrums book by Ellie Baker and Susan Goldstine. While this is not required, this book does have over 100 patterns and information how to create your own designs. The class project and my samples are all from this wonderful book.

No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.

This class has been taught at:
The Whole Nine Yarns, Woodstock GA;
South Carolina Knit Inn 2016, Greenville SC.
