Ukrainian Netted Cuff with Maria Rypan
Description: The stunning pizzazz comes from the continuous zigzag running around the entire bracelet. The contrast zigzag is set in between contrasting beads. Maria Rypan will show you how easily the zigzag pattern is created by colour placement as you bead along. The motifs are quickly formed as you bead weave vertically up and down. The colour changes keep you on your toes and works up quickly into a bracelet band
3 hours
Time: 1pm -4pm, Saturday June 12 2021
Maximum participants: 15
Age/experience level: Comfortable with in-hand beadweaving
Price per participant: $45
