Description
An overview will be given of the historical use of natural and created embellishments for garments and hats. This will include, but not be limited to, pearls, natural stones, and glass beads. After discussing the history of bead work, equipment will be handed out and each student will outline a simple shape in fake pearls, with more discussion of how to purchase and use modern beads during the sewing process. In part two students will learn about fill patterns and will begin (and possibly finish) filling in the shape outlined in the first part. Again, during the sewing process there will be discussion of problems that can arise and how to solve them, as well as more discussion about historical accuracy. Students are encouraged to bring their own embroidery hoops. Everything else will be provided.
