What you'll learn in this more jewelry class:

If you know how to thread a needle and follow a basic sewing pattern, off-loom bead weaving will have familiar techniques. But don't worry--these classes are designed to get you started regardless of prior experience with a needle!

Students will Learn:
  • This class teaches the basics of seed beading and students will learn about the different types of seed beads and which beads work best for each stitch
  • While peyote is the stitch most students ask to learn, you can actually choose to learn any of the five basic off-loom seed bead stitches: Brick, Ndebele (herringbone), peyote, right angle weave or square stitch. The stitch being taught is determined by the group at the start of the class--the instructor is pretty flexible.
  • The basic flat pattern for the chosen stitch; variations will be taught as time permits
  • Tips for threading a needle and following a seed bead pattern
  • Various ways to finish seed bead projects and attach clasps
  • How to add thread for a seed bead project
By the end of class students will have completed: Students do not usually complete a project but spend time learning the basics of the stitch they have selected and variations if time permits. However, students often have a good start for a bracelet that can be finished at home.

Peyote Stitch & Beyond Supplies

Bead In Hand carries all of the materials recommended for this project and includes time during the class for shopping. This project uses:
  • All students need a beading needle and thread
  • Seed beads in one or two colors, usually size 11/0 or 8/0, determined by the stitch being taught

All classes at this location

If you are coming by car, the easiest way to get here is on the Eisenhower Expressway (290). Oak Park borders Chicago due west of Chicago’s downtown. From O’Hare airport, take 294 south to 290 east. From Chicago, take 290 west from 90/94 or downtown.

From the east: Exit 290 at Austin Blvd. At the end of the exit ramp, make a right turn onto Austin (you'll be travelling north). The first street has a traffic light and that is Harrison St. Turn left and drive 3 1/2 blocks. Bead in Hand will be on your left. The shop is just before the first stop sign you come to at Harrison and Lombard Ave.

From the west: Exit 290 at Austin Blvd. At the end of the exit ramp, make a left turn onto Austin (you'll be travelling north). The first street has a traffic light and that is Harrison St. Turn left and drive 3 1/2 blocks. Bead in Hand will be on your left. The shop is just before the first stop sign you come to at Harrison and Lombard Ave.

The most common mistake is exiting at Harlem Ave., because Harrison Street does not go all the way through to Harlem. (But if you like getting confused, this is the place to do so, because east of Harlem is Oak Park and west of Harlem is Forest Park. In Oak Park, Harrison Street is parallel to the expressway on its north side, while in Forest Park Harrison Street is parallel to the expressway on its south side. See, wasn't that fun?)

If you are taking public transportation, the easiest way to get here is the CTA Blue Line. Take the train marked Forest Park. Exit the train at Austin Blvd. Walk west toward Lombard Avenue. When you get to the top of the stairs, you’ll be on the Lombard Ave. bridge over the Eisenhower Expressway. Turn right (north) and walk one block to the stop sign at Harrison Street. Turn right again (east) and Bead in Hand is just a few doors down on the same side of the street.

Parking
There is often street parking in front, but if not, turn onto Lombard and park along Lombard. There is metered parking right near the corner, but if you drive a little further you can park on the street for free. There is also parking on weekdays and Saturdays in the parking lot just east of us, off of Taylor Ave. (next to the church).

Reviewed by Jo-Ann B. on 2/10/2019
I’m so glad I made the trek. The store is wonderfully arranged with what seems to be an endless array of beads, etc. The atmosphere was cozy. Our instructor Kim was awesome! She was thorough, patient and kind. I actually learned two bead weaving techniques. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn peyote stitch.
