A true love for anyone who creates it, the Exquisite Bead Book is a treasury of stitched embellishment created in in a small scale. This miniature work of art showcases a multitude of beading techniques and ways in which beads can be used. Learn to make beaded fabric pages to create a custom-made book using hand painted felt, organza and fusible webbing which will be available in class. The pages will be beaded using different bead techniques including surface bead work, embroidery stitches with beads and bead edgings. Gail’s special stitched binding will be worked by students in class on a mock up book. They will then be able to bind and complete the beaded pages following the class using the example and notes. Open to all and suitable for anyone.
