Surface Design with Beads
There are few instances in weaving on a floor loom where we reach beyond that wonderful boat shuttle to stop and manipulate the warp or weft threads to create unique finishes rather than rely on typical patterning. In this course students will explore several applications where beads can be added as accents, motifs or fringe embellishments to their weaving. Sara will introduce students to ways to add these lovely little gems into their handwoven fabrics. Students will be encouraged to design their own motifs on their sampler or use a provided design. All materials included with tuition.
