The first of the classes offered is Saturday, May 31, 2014. I'll be teaching St. Petersburg Chain stitch. We will be making bracelets, but this is also the stitch that I use for my lariat necklaces and have started layering into some of my larger bangle bracelets for a different texture. It's a $65.00 class, and you can register online here: http://college.interlochen.org/program/jewelry-bead-weaving-st-petersburg-stitch
(I'm still not happy with this image that I took for this class, I'll get a better one soon hopefully.)
The second class of the summer offerings is my Beginning Peyote Stitch bracelet on Monday, June 30, 2014. This is a great way to start peyote stitching. We work 2 beads at a time (instead of one bead at a time which is how I bead for the most part) which allows us to make a wide bangle in a shorter amount of time. I also teach how to add a button/bead and loop closure which can be used in many jewelry making techniques. It's a $65.00 class, and you can register online here: http://college.interlochen.org/program/jewelry-bead-weaving-beginning-peyote-stitch
It's not on Interlochen's Calender yet but we have a temporary date to teach the beaded leaf, which is up on my calender on www.jennyschu.com (which I just noticed the calender is having some issues that I'll need to fix!) Keep checking back for more dates as they come up too.
I'm excited to be teaching a private class this week. Beginner beaders are always fun, and I do enjoy smaller, by-the-hour classes. We'll be doing the two drop peyote bracelets, it's perfect if you're just starting to learn to bead.
