Additional Information
In this workshop you will bead embroider an object of your choosing. You will also learn about exploring with epoxy clay and different ways to incorporate clay into challenging situations. The class will start with a presentation to get your creative thoughts flowing about different techniques and ideas. We will then start the design and brainstorming session, using masking tape and paper to make a pattern to cover the object. You will transfer the patterns onto Ultra Suede and, if needed, sew them together. Using components and beads that you bring along, you will lay out and design your piece on the pattern. Bead embroidery techniques will be used to cover the foundation. Heidi will also provide an assortment of components, such as cabochons, fur, metal, and many more, to purchase. A $30 credit is included in the kit to purchase these supplies. The choice of objects is personal and totally up to the student. Please feel free to email Heidi with any questions you may have; she wants this to be a fun and informative class, with solutions to any challenges we may find. Before the class begins in June, choose an object you wish to bead. The item should be no larger than 6” x 6” with some exceptions. Curvy objects are more challenging; flat boxes or a chest will be easier to work with, but of course the choice of object is up to you! Please email a picture of your object to Heidi so she can begin to anticipate any challenges the shape might pose. Heidi's email Heidi will have instruction on different basic techniques you can use in bead embroidery and epoxy clay. Heidi encourages you think about a certain technique you wish to learn from her. Give it some thought and pass your ideas along with the photo of the object you intend to bead!
