That’s what technique classes are all about, dipping your toe in the water and trying new things. We started our current mystery class, Three Birds by Brooke Connor with the idea that it would be a class of fun and different techniques.
In the first lesson we experimented with goldwork, using different types of real metal threads and couching them to the canvas in different ways.
We used beautiful Pearl Purl from Access Commodities and fun metal threads originally designed for use on Saris.
If you would like to see a series of tutorials on how I work with Pearl Purl, click here.
Beads are always fun for me so I incorporated, regular beading, brick beading and a few new patterns of beads into our birdies.
Then we made fancy feathers of Twisted Lazy Daisy Stitches for their head feathers! Here’s another video! Who knows what I will put in the next lesson, more goldwork, more beads, something else? Time will tell.
For those of you signed up for this class, it is shipping in waves. Lesson one has rolled out to the earlier signups. We are waiting on canvases to arrive so that we can send more. Stay tuned, hopefully it won’t be too much longer. If you would like to sign up and have a complete kit sent to you at the end of our class, here’s the link.
Lesson Two of the Three Birds class will be in about two weeks.
