Bead Loom Bracelets

Learn how to use a bead loom to create beautiful bracelets featuring delicate neon seed beads in detailed designs. You’ll also learn how to interpret bead loom patterns, how to create your own patterns, and how to add an adjustable macrame closure to your bracelets to fit any wrist.

Bead loom is a form of bead weaving, which has a rich history in Native American traditions, as well as around the world. We’ll dive more into the history of bead looming at Camp!

Although these bracelets look intricate, they are quite simple to make once you understand the steps. Your Craft Counselor & bead looming enthusiast Laura can’t wait to teach you how to make them yourself!

We know you'll get hooked on this awesome process!

What if I miss a workshop? Not to worry! You’ll receive videos of each session so you can learn on your own time. You can ask questions and engage with your fellow campers in the CommuniTEA! 

What is the difference between a Workshop and Craft Canteen? The Workshops are where all the craft learning happens! Craft Canteens are fun and more casual programming where campers can hang out with one another, have some designated time to work on your project, and ask for specialized help on any part that’s got you stumped! 

What is the CommuniTEA you keep mentioning? The Neon Tea Party CommuniTEA is an unwaveringly supportive online crafting community, hosted on Mighty Networks. It’s super easy to make an account, attend events, and connect with other crafters. It’s FREE to make an account, and it will be your hub for Camp happenings! JOIN HERE!

Campers will have access to a project guide that helps break down all the tips for crocheting the pattern, as well as the teaching videos of each session. Your craft counselor and fellow campers will also be available to help in our private CommuniTEA chat.

Can I sign my child up for CAMP TNTP? CAMP TNTP is a program for adults only. By keeping the program 18+, our community of adult crafters can fully relax, be themselves, and form genuine friendships with other crafters across North America. That said, you are of course welcome to share your resources, workshop recordings, and supplies with your child or children! This is a great project for crafters ages 9+.

What is the Craft Show? At the final session, all campers will show off their completed project, and together we’ll celebrate how much we learned over the course of Bead Camp!!
