Durham Arts Council presents

Paper Bead Making Workshops

  • $18 plus supply fee

Rolled paper beads are fun and fast to make. Women at least as far back as Victorian England in the late 1800s were making paper beads. Young ladies would gather socially and make beads from scraps of wallpaper rolled on knitting needles. The beads were polished with bees wax and strung onto pieces of yarn and used to make door curtains to divide rooms. Today, paper beading as an art form has gained in popularity across the world. Modern artists are exploring creative and exciting ways to work with paper beads. Adventures in Paper Beading - Taking Your Beads to the Next Level. This class will take your paper beading to the next level! The class is most appropriate for persons with beginning paper bead rolling experience who want to get more practice rolling and move beyond the classic bicone shape. Participants will be able to experiment with ways to decorate paper so that they can move beyond the original color/designs. They will learn how to create striped effects and how to accent solid color papers. At the end of class, participants will have varying quantities of finished beads. A $12 materials fee is due to the instructor at the beginning of each workshop if participants bring their materials kit from a previous Beginning Paper Bead Making Workshop (primarily a paper bead roller and glue/sealant). For those who do not bring a rolling kit, basic kits may be purchased for an additional $15. Pre-cut paper and jewelry kits will also be available for sale at the end of class should you wish to complete additional projects at home.
