About This Class


This class is another great stepping stone in learning Celtic Knotwork and the second of a series.   In this class you’ll learn one of the secrets to visualizing how shapes begin to become magical knots. You'll learn two key concepts in “growing” knots into continuous lines using the heart shape and pretzel knot.

This class is for those who:

  • Are ready to move beyond simple interlocking shape knots **
  • Want to get a peek at the beginning process of designing knot forms
  • Are looking to continue to learn Celtic knotwork step by step with ease.
  • Love to draw, paint and make marks.
  • Are looking for new design skills to bring to your illustration, calligraphy, art journaling, lettering, painting, tattoo art and carving.

**Need a review of interlacing shapes?  Great! See my first class HERE:

In this class you'll learn:

  • Key concepts of how to take a simple heart shape and extending it into a continuous knot band.
  • Reminders of tools to have on hand and my favorites for drawing knotwork.
  • A simple heart to pretzel knot
  • How to create your first pretzel knot border
  • How to create your first heart/pretzel knot in the round
  • A few ways these knots can be transformed.
  • One of my “secret weapons… er tools” for continuing to learn weaving of bands

In upcoming classes, you'll be ready to tackle even more unique knot forms

Thanks. I always wanted to know how to do this. Thanks for sharing. I was not able to catch the sign up website though. Guess I am not fast enough to stop the video.
There is something about the way Sadelle has broken down the very complex (looking) steps to this art that makes it incredibly easy to follow and do. She's taken something that looks impossible and made it easy and fun. Even after the first lesson, I felt confident, but now having just completed Lesson Two I am "knotting" like crazy and very much looking forward to her next classes. Take this class--you won't be sorry. Instead of feeling tied up in knots, you'll feel yourself relaxing and centering as you follow her instructions.
Easy and to the point. Clear direction and nice speed.
