Surface embellishment series- Relief beading

We have designed a series of surface embellishments classes for winter. They complement each other graciously.

Use conventional beads as well as unexpected materials in this 3-D beading class with Rosie Ford. She will guide you through some methods to build up the surface of your fabric using beads. You will also explore the possibilities of the humble seed bead to create  “layered” beadwork. Infuse poetry into some of your forgotten textile treasures and bring them back into the limelight or incorporate some embellished panels  into the construction of a pattern. A selection of floral arrangements, compliments of Cecilia Fox, will be serve as inspiration for form and colour.
