Reading Peyote Pattern Charts: Free Taster Class

Learn how to read Peyote pattern charts with ease, in 3 simple steps

This free taster class is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to read flat Peyote stitch charts. I will be teaching you three simple steps to understand a pattern chart and then turn it into a written word chart.

If you then want to try some patterns, or if you get stuck and need help, you can upgrade to the full Peyote pattern class. In that, I also teach you how to read tubular Peyote charts, and charts for the geometric shapes, e.g. circular, triangle, square, warped square, etc.

What materials do you need?

Nothing specific. This class is all about reading your charts, so it's up to you whether or not you want to do any beading!

Who is the class for?

Anyone! You don't need to have any previous experience - just to have a desire to learn how to read a Peyote pattern chart!

How does the class work?

You can follow the materials at your own pace and come back to use them over and over again.

You can view the full class curriculum below before you enroll.

"An excellent introduction to beading from charts and very helpful reminder for experienced beaders. Or maybe an excellent technique for reading charts even experienced beaders may have never seen."

- Marti Mashinter, Satisfied student from this class

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
