Native American Beading

Native American Beading

$50

with Trisha Morey

Merrymeeting is sorry to report that this class is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.

This is a traditional method of Maliseet beadwork passed down to the instructor through her family. There are many styles of beading, from earring making to medallions and loom work. For this class we’ll be planning our work first on grid paper, transposing that to canvas, and then beading what we have planned. We will be focusing on hair pieces and medallions for this particular project, but you can use this method to create nearly anything. It’s very freeing. You may follow along as I go and create what I do with me, or you may watch what I do and then try to create your own pattern and style. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Let’s bead! Watch and follow the video before the first class. Meet-up Date: November 16. Video and materials list will be made available to students upon registration. No discounts. This class will be offered through Zoom or Webex. Students must have an audio and video enabled computer, tablet or smartphone to participate. Merrymeeting will send you information about accessing the class prior to its start date.
