In this online beading workshop we will create a stunning beaded door that hides secrets in this whimsical design.
Create either a door to the Secret Garden or a Fairy Door and add embellishment. It’s up to you what you hide behind the door; will it be a literary cabochon, a fairy charm or something else entirely?!
Techniques used include: brick stitch, peyote stitch and bead embroidery. This class is recommended for advanced beaders. Some experience of bead embroidery would be helpful but not essential.
Online Workshop Requirements
The class will be taught using Zoom online meeting software. This will allow you to see me and your fellow classmates (you will have the ability to mute or turn off your camera at any point if you wish). We can also share photos as we work.
You will need a computer/laptop, smartphone or tablet with camera and audio capabilities. You will need to download the free Zoom software or app to your computer, phone or tablet in advance of the meeting. Full details of how to join the online meeting will be sent to you upon booking. The app/software is free and you do not need to create an account to attend the class.
Materials are not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking. Don’t forget to take a look at my range of handmade cabochons, such as my Secret Garden book extract cabochons, as they are perfect for this class!
You will need:
- Size 11 and 15 Miyuki seed beads
- size 11 Delica beads
- 18mm oval cabochon or fairy charm
- glass flower beads
- 2-hole Tile beads
- embroidery base and backing fabric
About the class
Class sizes are kept small so you can be guaranteed plenty of help and support. I will have two cameras in use during the class so you will be able to see my demonstrations up close in high definition as well as my face! There is a messaging function in addition to the meeting audio as well so plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss the project. My classes are fun and informal with plenty of opportunity for discussion and general chatter.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the session and the fact you will be sent the full pattern upon booking refunds cannot be given if you are unable to make one or both of the sessions. If you cannot make one/both of the sessions I will try to swap you to another date for the same project if available but this cannot be guaranteed. I am always available if you have any questions on the project after the workshop.
If you have any questions please contact me. I’m looking forward to seeing you!
