Techniquark Class

SKU: VC-TechQrk Category:


6 hours +

My first online class focuses on making colorful components (twisted and striped cane, simple murrini as well as checkerboard murrini) – which will be assembled and encased. The class also shows how to incorporate these components in different types of beads. Great class for beginners and intermediate beadmakers.

Virtual classes are currently available through Facebook. You must have a Facebook account to access them.

Watch this video  for a preview of the class:

I usually name those beads “quark” (long story)but for the class, I renamed them “techniquarks”, because this is one type of bead that requires so many “generally useful”  techniques, and you’re going to learn all of them: – making twisties in a different way – making murrini, from simple to complex – putting together a pleasing design – encasing without smearing and distorting – and a whole bunch of bonus techniques.   When and where does this class take place? At your home of course – at any time that’s convenient for you Initially, I had a live class, but people weren’t so happy having to sit at the computer for over 6 hours, which is why I now only offer “on-demand” – whenever you have time to watch. The “on-demand” version will give you access to all the videos, including the entire recorded Zoom class from the original live class, the only thing you can’t do is ask questions in person, but you can always ask questions and make comments on the special page “Let’s talk Quarks and Stuff”. You will get access to THIS page soon as you sign up, so far it only has a couple of video messages from Kelly and me, plus pictures of beads, but with your help, it will be more populated as the class nears.
