Bead weaving can be described as a technique where the beads are secured into place between the warp and weft threads. This technique requires two pases of the weft thread. One going under the warp and one going over. The beads are strung and held into place in the “over” pass. Pieces are typically rectangular and flat. The design possibilities are numerous and dependent on the width and size of the bead. Coming in May to the The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room an introductory class in bead weaving.
