Workshops with Sharon Hutton

Captured Netting Rope

This workshop covers Caputured Netting – a fun to make rope that builds quickly.

Students will learn how to incorporate different size seed beads, pearls and crystals to create 3 very different ropes using the same base technique.

Small sections of each project will be started in the workshop to be finished at home.

Twisted Herringbone Rope

This is one of my favorite go to ropes when I need a quick and substantial rope. It looks great on its own or with a pendant. We will be using larger beads and I will show you how to mix colour and sizes to create some great features within the rope.

This is a beginner class however Students will learn several different enhancements to basic herringbone stitch, including the use of varying bead sizes and colours together.
