ebb and flo crafting classes

I teach classes in wire crochet and chainmaille at Beadworks in Newport Village, Port Moody.
Please phone 604 486 8769 for details. Please note, payment is required in advance and does not include beads, findings, extra wire or jumprings.

Each class runs for 2 hours, tools and some basic materials are provided (ie. wire for the crochet class and jumprings for the chainmaille class). Beads are extra.
Currently, classes run every second Thursday 11am to 1pm - check below for schedule (scroll down to bottom of page).

Scroll down for the wire crochet class bead list (please assemble your beads before the class as we only have 2 hours to complete the projects).

See you there, happy crafting!

PS: If you're a fibre nut too, check out the list of classes at Black Sheep Yarns in Port Moody. A few are taught by the excellent Yummy Yarn (and her hand-dyed wool is for sale there too!).


wire crochet class bead list

as a guideline to get you started before the class


NB: beads should be centre drilled for ease of use, freshwater pearls can be used but I suggest beginners start with the glass pearls since these are more uniformly drilled


  • simple 3-strand bracelet

- uses 3-6 large focal beads eg. acrylic flowers, lampwork plus 45-50 contrasting larger seedbeads, druks, gemstone chips


  • simple 3-strand choker necklace

- uses approximately 100 larger seedbeads, druks, gemstone chips, etc. plus 6 - 9 focals (optional)


  • mesh cuff

- uses approximately 60 - 90 beads in total. my suggestion is to choose 4 - 6 focal beads (flat, thru-drilled, round and no larger than a quarter) plus the remainder in complimentary seedbeads, druks, gemstone chips, etc. if using smaller seed beads, you will need 2x/3x the numbers given



Please choose your beads before the class as time is limited. We will be using 4.5 - 5.5mm steel crochet hooks (provided) and I will advise on clasps, other findings, etc as the class progresses.

Thank you and see you in class  J
