Filigree and Feathers
This class will start by focusing on stringer design and heat control. Kerri will help you learn how to create filigree designs inspired by the scrollwork of medieval tapestries. You will be able to improve their stringer techniques from this class and also learn how to apply these techniques to create any design you can imagine!
From there the class will move into “painting” birds on your beads. We will explore various techniques using simple tools, colour layering, creating texture and methods to create several different types of birds.
