Tropical Fish and Beach Glass
Fresh catch! In this class we will start the day by learning the Knotless netting technique on a beach glass pendant that we will make into a long necklace (gourds and shells will also be available, students choice). I will cover different gauge materials, different netting techniques and how to get different results from the same knotting technique. Once the necklace is complete we will then create 2 gourd fish with netting on the body. The gourds will be enhanced with air dry clay to form the fish features. We will be adding a wash of color (red and green/blue hues available). We will then do the knotless netting on the body to mimic scales. I will also teach basic cordage in raffia to hang the fish from. There are different ways we can personalize
them and make them unique. I will have a selection of crystals to choose from for the necklace, and an array of linen colors. These fish are adorable and fun, no two will be alike!
