Are you interested in learning how to make a beaded box?
Do you have a lot of Superduos to use up?
If you said 'yes' to either of these questions, then this project could be for you. If you said 'yes' to both questions, then this is a 'Must Do' project!
How will you learn?
You will get a PDF tutorial to download. So, you can print this out, or work from your computer/tablet screen. The tutorial gives you written instructions, with photos.
You also get videos demonstrating each part of this project (a total of around 34 minutes - that's a lot of detail!), so you can watch the box taking shape and follow along with your own beads.
If you get stuck, you can ask questions and get personal help from me. You can also interact with other beaders who are using this tutorial.
So, with all that help, this course really is suitable for anyone who enjoys beading.
When does the course start?
Whenever you like! As soon as you enrol, you can start beading. You get lifetime access to everything here. So, just bookmark this page and return to it whenever you want.
You can work at your own pace, taking as many beading sessions as you need to complete your project.
If you want to make more of these boxes, come back any time and use the materials again, as often as you want.
How do I pay?
You can pay using Paypal or using your debit or credit card. Just select your preferred option from the dropdown menu on the payment page (after clicking 'enrol').
You can also choose whether you would prefer to pay in US dollars or British Pounds (although if you want to use Paypal, you will need to pay in dollars). This doesn't affect the cost of the course - it is just a courtesy option to accommodate as many people as possible.
How do you sign up?
Simple! Just click on the enrol button at the top or bottom of this page. If you keep scrolling down, you can see my profile and find out more about me as your tutor.
Below that, you will find the full course curriculum. So, you can view some sections for free before you enrol, just to check whether this is right for you.
Then, as soon as you have enrolled and paid, you're ready to start beading!
If you're still unsure, you can always try out one of my free courses to see the quality of the teaching. Or, just check out the 'how did you get on' section at the bottom of this page, to see what current students have been saying about the course. I guarantee you won't be disappointed and you will be able to make this box.
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 www.myworldofbeads.com.
