New Project for 2011

I have signed up for an Online Beading Embellishment Workshop with Lisa Walton of Dyed and Gone to Heaven.  It starts on January 6th for 6 weeks. I have been getting hand dyed fabric from Lisa for a number of years and this workshop is a new venture for her. It caught my eye and I thought it would be a good way to start the new year.

Lisa plans to cover a minimum of:
  • Basics and equipment
  • Seed stitich
  • Stop stitch and variations
  • Attaching interesting embeliishments such as shells, stones and cabachons
  • Lazy stitch and variations
  • Back stitch including drawing with beads
  • Fringing and dangling beads
The course will be a combination of notes and short videos which will be sent weekly. Students will also have access to the course Blog  to interact with Lisa and other students.

I think this will be a fun way to learn some beading tricks and will be something I can take with me while I am traveling. If you think you might be interested, you can sign up here.
