Description
This class will cover the use of pearls (and other gemstones) in embellishing clothing during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Students will learn how to sew on individual pearls, pearls in a line, and how to fill in shapes. They will also learn how to sew drop pearls along an edge, how to purchase stones, and how to design decorations both to go on trim and to stand alone. Each student is asked to bring a small embroidery hoop and a pair of embroidery scissors.
