Textured Bead Embroidery Workshop

Friday, April 17; 10am – 5:00pm

novice and experienced bead embroiderers, Textured Bead Embroidery
is an intensive study of a new approach to bead embroidery
which features unconventional works that are sculptural, three
dimensional, dynamic and very textured. During this hands-on workshop
students will work with a wide array of seed, glass and pearl beads to
create a bead embroidered cuff. Students will learn how to use pearls,
drops, daggers, hexes, triangles, Czech glass and more in uncommon
orientations to create dramatic effects. In addition to a review of the
basics including backstitch, stop stitch, bezels, bails and fringe,
students will learn specialty Textured Bead Embroidery techniques like
layering and clustering; three-dimensional engineering; finishing
options and the design concepts that give this format its distinctive
appearance. All experience levels.

cone-shaped drop earrings sprinkled with pearls and crystals in patterns

colors and finishes. Students will learn basic bead embroidery
techniques including the back stitch and stop stitch on a printed
template; how to transform it into a three dimensional cone; how to
finish it with lining, edging, embellishment and fringe; and how to use

embedded in the stone. All experience levels.
