Jan Term – Beading on the Loom: The Art of Pueblo-Style Bead Work – G19A143

Workshop ID: G19A143
Dates: January 2, 2019 - January 21, 2019
Price: $3,100.00

The art of loom beading beautifully captures designs that are created on paper and then strung on a loom. Let your mind design what you would like to see in your piece. Your beadwork attaches to soft deerskin fitted and molded to brass to create jewelry, tapestry and other treasures. Beading on the Loom: The Art of Pueblo-Style Bead Work will include hands-on instruction from beginning to end and class time will require your creativity. Rooted in the context of Pueblo culture and craft, we will learn stitches such as the ladder, brick and peyote to create loomed art that will capture your inner spirit.
