Pre-registration is required; the registration and kit-reservation deadline is Friday, October 28, 2016.
Looms come in all sizes and shapes; the Jewel Loom which Rogalski and Mudrick use is a tabletop version, less than 3x11”. Participants will be instructed in how to string the warp and then weave with size 11 Delica beads to create a cuff bracelet in one of 6 patterns (your choice). Learn how to end and add thread, along with other helpful tips. Each of the kits for this workshop includes a special finding which enables a quick and easy method for finishing your beadwork. Most students will complete their cuff during the workshop.
Leslie Rogalski and her sister Deb Mudrick are the Sleepless Beaders. Their business was established in 2012 to provide kits and tutorials of Rogalski’s designs. Rogalski is known for her unique artistry as a jewelry designer, with a specialty in seed bead work. She is the former editor-in-chief of Step by Step Beads and BeadingDaily.com, a former Swarovski Ambassador, and the author of “The Business of Beading” column in Bead & Button magazine. In addition to her co-ownership of Sleepless Beader, she is currently the Creative Director and seed bead specialist for The Beadsmith.
The fee for the workshop itself is $75; the kit fees are $58 (for the Original, Canyon, and Mondrian Collage kits), $53 (for the Cairo or Christmas Gifts kits) and $56 (for the Cleopatra kit). The kits contain all the beads necessary, an illustrated step-by-step tutorial with color chart and row by row text, all findings, Jewel Loom, a spool of WildFire beading thread, and a 3” beading needles.
