‘Easy-Peasy’ Gilding Techniques
Create intricate lace-like chains and structures from wires and beads which are perfect for pendants, necklaces and embroidery embellishments. Use the simplest technique for a fantastic and addictive result.
Proof that no matter whether you can knit or crochet before this day, you can produce some wonderful ‘tangled treasures’ with fine coloured wires and beautiful glass beads. This is an experimental workshop during which you will learn to knit, crochet and wrap to create small treasures which may be for jewellery, small hangings or accessories for your embroideries.
If you are ‘hooked’ on crocheted wire techniques, then choose this day to explore more advanced crochet techniques with wire and beads! Create delicate, shimmering jewellery or wild, bold structures from the same starting points.
Twists and Turns
A new twist on coiling!
Fantastic coiled fabric structures grow to become vessels, sculptures or hangings using scrap fabrics, textured threads, wires and paint effects.
These structures can be free standing if they are strong, attached to a background and incorporated into a piece or hung to allow the gaps in-between to show to advantage. If working on a small scale the pieces can be jewellery, corsages or embellishments for a piece. The choice is yours!
