Heart Space Studios has gone totally beaded – an exhibition was preceded by introductory beading classes is being followed by a beading Master Class, held by Ilsa Fatt, where students will make a magnificent glass beaded bracelet incorporating Ilsa’a hand made beads.
The beading classes have been run by popular demand from Heart Space followers, because so many people wanted the opportunity to attempt this project but felt they needed a short introduction to basic beading.
Ilsa showed everyone how to make a small square using peyote stitch, a simple and stable backing
to enable you to start decorating it to your heart’s content
Ilsa then demonstrated 3 separate beaded drop formations and the students could experiment with many types of different shapes and sizes of beads.
The finished pieces can be made into brooches or pendants
So far so good, now the students can feel more confident about joining a master class as they will come prepared with the basics stitch with which to develop their own ideas from their personal practice by using beads – and they will really appreciate the accompanying exhibition at Heart Space Studios which is displayed on my next post….
