This workshop is aimed for those who are interested in beginning with bead embroidery techniques associated with Haute Couture. You will learn how to place beads and create volume with your embroidery, to then apply it to clothing items, objects and jewelry, developing your own designs.
We will explore the different types of materials available on the market and how to work with them in a very practical way.
The workshop consists of 1 class lasting 7.5 hours: in the first part you will learn basic techniques and experiment with the materials creating a sample of embroidery stitches; in the second part we will see examples of how different artists work with the materials, with the opportunity to intervene a cuff.
When finishing the workshop, you will have a demonstration with shapes and stitches, and an advanced project to continue embroidering.
Prior knowledge for embroidery is not necessary. The idea is to come and try it! This technique is very fun and the results can be really beautiful.
