It's happening! I'm teaching in Denver next month! The Rocky Mountain Bead Society has graciously invited me to their fair city and is sponsoring four days of micro macrame classes! I'm ridiculously excited (as you can probably gather from the exuberant use of exclamation marks) for this opportunity. Classes will be Thursday, August 18th through Sunday, August 21st and include the following:
The Micro Macrame Wrap Bracelet class: great for beginning students as a way to get familiar with knotting and working with cord as well as a good review for more seasoned knotters. We will cover five of the most common knots used in micro macrame working with .9mm cord.
Micro Macrame Leaves Bracelet class: a more challenging project than the Wrap, but still suitable for beginners (especially those with seed bead experience). Lots of practice on double half hitch knots and working with the smaller .5mm cord.
Micro Macrame Hydrangeas Bracelet class: combining beading and knotting working with mostly double half hitch knots and larks head knots. The results look like beaded lace!
Micro Macrame ZigZag Bracelet Class: one of my favorite patterns with endless possibilities for cord and bead variations.
If you're interested in taking any of these classes, registration is now open on the Rocky Mountain Bead Society's web page. They're offering special pricing for members (their annual dues are very reasonable) but registration is open to non-members as well. This is a great opportunity to build your knotting skills in a progression of classes if you like, or simply choose one that interests you the most. I hope to see you there!!
