Looming With Bugle Beads – Free Class with Michaels Classroom

The Project PDF is here:  Looming with Bugles

Description for our class:

In this action-packed class we are teaming up with Meredith Roddy from Beadalon to bring you an advanced looming technique! We will create a gorgeous bugle band bracelet with a loomed button closure. Previous experience looming will be helpful in preparation for this class. We will briefly cover setting up the loom and how to loom, but the focus of class is on using the Czech Seed Bead Bugles, and the creation of a loomed-in button closure. There are past classes in the jewelry section that focus on setting up the loom and basic looming.
