  • Description: Right-angle weave, also called RAW, is one of the easiest stitches to learn. When two threads are used, it is often called cross weaving (because the threads cross in opposite directions through the beads), and it is the basic stitch used for Japanese-style beadwork where it is often referred to as “Hachinoji- ami” (because the stitches form the number 8 = hachi) or “Kousa-ami” (kousa = crossing)

    Right-angle weave is so-named because of the way the beads lay at right angles to one another. It is a very versatile weave and you can use any types or sizes of beads, as well as combinations of beads of different sizes and shapes to create different effects. Mix different colored beads to create a variety of objects - from jewelry necklaces, bracelets, rings and belts, to ties, coasters, handbags and decorative items.

    Requirement: Material will be provided for the first lesson only.

    Wendy J. Palmer has been an avid crafter since a very early age. While in Brazil on holiday, she applied herself to learning the techniques of jewelers making, and was surprised to be inundated with orders from fellow travelers, friends and family. Her jewelry was soon on sale in boutiques in France, mainly under the brazika label. This weaving course will be Wendy’s first return to active beading since her move to Dubai in 1994.
