Learn the Peyote Stitch

The Peyote Stitch is used to bead around a cylindrical object like a drum stick or feather. Students will discuss different variations including Gourd Stitch, Brick Stitch and Peyote Rosettes. There are a few basic tricks to starting this stitch successfully and creating pleasing patterns. Students will create a piece that will be beaded around a feather, and learn other techniques that could be used to bead around a key ring or zipper pull. Students will be guided by our expert beading instructor, Andrew Bullock.* 

No previous beading experience needed, but here is some manual dexterity required to stitch one bead at a time.
