.


If you have your own materials and don't need a kit let Niamh know when you email to register.
Materials needed:
-2 Colours, all size 11 delica beads:
~100 red or pink beads for the heart
~500 beads for the background colour (see photo - this is an estimate)
The background colour should look different from the red or pink (ex: if the red or pink is solid, the other colour should be shiny or pearly and vice versa, for contrast) (will be slightly less beads for workshop)
- White Thread (2 full wingspan's worth).
- 2 Earring Hooks
- 1 Long Beading Needle (one that has some bend, for use with size 11 delica beads).


About the Cross-Cultural Beading Group
Everyone is invited to share their skills, learn and work independently in a welcoming atmosphere. No experience necessary. Novice and experienced beaders of all cultures, ages and genders are welcome.
Some sessions are unstructured: an opportunity to gather and work on our own projects, together. Others feature a guest beader who will share their history with beading and their techniques.
When there is a guest, a kit of free materials (incl. beads, thread, cloth and leather) will be available for you at MAWA or delivered to you. Note that numbers for these sessions will be limited.
