Learn French Beading: Beginner Course

Description

My Learn French Beading: Beginner Course is the ultimate guide for those just starting to learn the art of French Beaded Flowers. This course teaches the fundamentals of the art, from the beginner level techniques to assembling flowers.

The videos for this course are completely free, however, I also wrote and published a book to go along with the video series. The book can be purchased in PDF format in my shop, or as a Paperback on Amazon (and other online retailers). See the list of retails on my Books page. I highly recommend purchasing the book as it is a wonderful guide and reference book that teaches how to read patterns. The book also teaches how to arrange and assemble the flowers into a bouquet, which is not included in the video course.

This course teaches all of the beginner-level techniques: Continuous Loops, Continuous Crossover Loops, Continuous Wraparound Loops, Fringe, Basic Frame, and Lacing. There are individual videos for each of the techniques.

It includes 4 practice flowers: Lavender, Dame’s Rocket, Wild Clematis, and Black-Eyed Susan. By making these flowers you will get to see real applications of the techniques, and learn how to assemble a variety of flower types.
