TUCSON – Aster Cuff – Feb. 6


Asters get their name from the Latin word for "star" and their flowers are indeed the superstars of the fall garden.  Sheryl Lamarand shares how to manipulate and fold WireKnitZ® to create the foundation and showcase the Aster flower inspired by Wendy Zollar’s Flower Button Closure for Netted Scarf design.  Use tubular peyote and fringe techniques to make the components for this custom fitted, comfortable and easily worn cuff.

Skill Level:  Basic beading skills and familiarity with tubular peyote stitch.

Workshop Fee: $55.00 plus Kit Fee: $40.00
