Designed for both novice and experienced bead embroiderers, Textured Bead Embroidery Workshop 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, crystal and pearl beads to create a bead embroidered cuff. Students will learn how to use pearls, drops, daggers, hexes, tilas, spikes, 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.
