Free Bead Looming Demonstration with Erin Simonetti!
Bead Loomed Cuff
by Erin Simonetti
Friday, November 16th, 6:30 PM
Internationally known bead looming artist Erin Simonetti will be in the store to demonstrate seed bead looming! This historic form of beaded artwork is the subject of Erin's new book due to be published soon. This book promises to set the tone of seed bead looming for all bead weaving enthusiasts!
Erin will be bringing looms from her personal collection to demonstrate the different types that are available on the market today, as well as describing different methods of looming such as the traditional "tension method of looming', "shedding device style" and a "no warps or paper clip technique". Erin will also discuss the following topics:
- Pros and cons of different types of looms
- Pattern creating for the bead loom
- Computer programs available to create a "photo" graph loom pattern (with demonstration of software)
Erin's work has been published in magazines, how-to beading books, and
Erin's portrait in beads!
highlighted in bead suppliers' advertising campaigns (such as the Fire Mountain Gems ads found on the back of popular beading magazines). To view more of Erin's work, visit her popular website Bead, Beading, Beaded.
This is an incredible opportunity for
Erin's loom from Beadloom.com
everyone to learn about the art of seed bead looming from one of the master's herself! Erin is looking forward to answering any questions you have about looming, including suggestions on which loom would be best for you!
Please call the store, 240-456-4568, if you have any questions or need to make a reservation! We would like to be able to give Erin an estimate of participants. We look forward to see you there!
