Kaleidoscope Tray - Sherri Beyrer—Instructor
registration closed

Kaleidoscope Tray is beautifully twined with 1/2mm and 1mm cotton cord. Purple
and teal weaving literally pop against a black background. The complimenting beads are glass. The beads cause the undulating effect of the weaving and also the slight puckering effect. The basket is woven round and then the eight corners are accentuated by pinching them. Students experience beads and puckering. Emphasis on twining, shaping and neatness. Kaleidoscope is recommended for all levels - some previous twining with waxed
threads is recommended, although not required. 
Size - 4-3/8” across x 1-5/16” deep. Special tools: Sharp embroidery scissors, small pointed packing tool
or awl, personal light and extension cord. 
Beginner to Intermediate.  $35.00

Some color choices will be available for the accent weaving.Size: Length 15” x Width 11” x Height 6” (not including handle).
