The Art of Hand Stitching Beads on Cloth"

Jan 15-17, 2018

$400.00

This workshop begins by introducing all of the stitches that make up the backbone of bead embroidery—those stitches most commonly used in contemporary bead work on fabric. Initially students explore all the basic stitches used in bead embroidery. Then students advance to learn ways to beautifully and securely incorporate larger beads, buttons, and cabochons into their quilts, fiber art, and embroideries. They also explore a variety of edge stitches and fringe techniques while continuing to work on their sampler for future reference and inspiration. The class culminates with students beginning to develop their own bead-work style while exploring designs that range from sparsely-stitched individual beads to densely beaded focal areas. Students have opportunities to explore known variations on introduced stitches as well as develop their own visual vocabulary of bead embroidery.

Class time is a mixture of sampling bead embroidery techniques and exploring variations on those stitches based on each individual student’s interests and aesthetic. Each day contains a mixture of hand stitching, viewing images and examples of bead embroidery for inspiration and technique illustration, and time sharing discoveries with one another. Each student goes home with a detailed sampler containing all of the many bead embroidery stitches learned and developed in class as well as a color booklet with information about stitches, bead and thread selection, and other important information for continued exploration of bead embroidery beyond the classroom.
