Intro to Bead Embroidery
(with Artist, Lisa Ballowe)
Saturday, October 6th from 1:00pm - 4:00pm
The history of beadwork goes back several thousand years and is frequently found on ceremonial clothing and robes found in archeological sites throughout Europe, Africa and Native American cultures. This is a great beginner class that will teach you the process of this ancient art of bead embroidery. Students will receive step-by-step instructions on how to sew beads around a cabochon, choosing from 3 different color combinations. By the end of class, students will have completed a beautiful pendant of their own. No prior experience is necessary. This class will help in creating the foundation for future bead embroidery classes.
The materials kit fee is not included in the cost of tuition. This fee is due to the instructor on the day of class. The kit will include a cabochon glued to the beading medium, beads, thread, needle and instructions. Students are highly recommended to bring magnification (reading) glasses and a portable light if possible. The instructor will provide beading mats and glue which will remain with her after the class.
Instructor Lisa Ballowe is a self-taught, award-winning artist. She is a Juried Artist with the Arts and Craftsmen Guild, and attends Beading Retreats regularly learning from world renowned bead embroidery teachers to constantly challenge herself and strengthen her beading skills.
