Join us for a virtual workshop learning how to do brick stitch.
PLEASE NOTE THE MATERIALS FOR THIS WORKSHOP ARE NOT INCLUDED, THEY CAN BE BOUGHT SEPARATELY.
We will be running the session on Saturday 6th June at 2pm.
This is a great little project to get to grips with brick stitch, Steph will teach you how to get started, how to increase and decrease and create a hanging hole within your beading. The sweet little beaded hexagons are great for making pendants, earrings or stitch markers.
How will it work?
Buy the virtual workshop and we will email you a link to join the class via Zoom, the day before along with instructions.
What if I miss the beginning, or can’t make the time after I’ve bought the kit?
If you have missed the beginning you will still be able to join in, but unfortunately we’ll not be able to start again from the beginning. If you’ve missed more that the first 15 minutes or so, you might find it easier to wait until you can access the video after the live session has finished.
How long will the workshop be?
We will anticipate the workshop will be approximately 1 and a half hours (including introductions and questions at the end). Steph, our tutor will be available for longer and will stay connected with anyone who has further questions or needs extra help (after all , everyone will have different levels of experience and works at a different pace, which is absolutely fine).
Do I need special software or equipment to view the tutorial?
You will need to use a device that has a forward facing camera, not all PC’s or laptops have this, however most tablets, pads and phones do. We will be using a service called Zoom, so that you can interact with Steph and ask questions.

Materials needed to join in?
Miyuki Delica beads (size 11), we have a range of colours, in theory you only need one, but multiple colours will make a more interesting and colourful end result (I’d say 3 contrasting colours is a good start). A great and inexpensive way of getting a few colours is buying one of our Delica bead mixes.
Beading thread, Nymo works well for this.
Beading needle size 10 or 12 would be ideal.
What else might I need?
There are a couple of items that are really useful, but not essential and some of you might already have them.
A beading mat – very useful for stopping all your beads from rolling away.
