Kinga Nichols

Design Class

January 9, Thursday, 2019, 10-4

Class: $85        Kit: $85

This full day class is suitable for people who are comfortable with basic bead embroidery techniques and want to challenge themselves to create their own design and learn the creative process of creating a striking looking pendant around a unique focal. The basic kit includes a large array of materials you can pick from. In class I will also have a large selection of focals. From inexpensive to luxurious. Labradorites, K2 jaspers, boulder opals, stitchtite,charoite, bone carvings and more, of course you can always bring your own focal as well. You may bring some of your own materials  too, if you feel like including something special you really want to use. The images above to give people a general idea of what can be done, they will not be replicated exactly. As a design class, this is less step by step than a project based class and better suited for people who enjoy thinking outside the box. I will of course ensure that you get the most out of it, and provide guidance with the whole process.

January 25, Saturday, 10-4

The Devil is in the Details…

 

Jewelry – in comparison to – say clothing or furniture – is quite small. Consequently, tiny details are important as they can affect not only the overall look of a piece but its overall mood. The choices we make about small elements and line-qualities can determine whether a piece is seen as classic or edgy, sweet or mysterious.

 

Adventurous Beginners will learn the basics of Soutache & Bead Embroidery while more advanced Stitchers will be excited by learning a new bezel-design and techniques for incorporating some of the newest beads on the market. All kits come with “choices” (skulls or daisies? disks or hibiscus?) and optional design decisions are offered throughout the project.

 

Students should come to class with a bead-blanket or bead-tray, a good pair of small-to-medium-sized, sharp scissors and any eyeglasses, magnifiers or additional light source they generally use for close-up work. To complete the project, students will need flat-nose pliers, flush-cutters and round-nose or looping pliers although it is unlikely that these tools will be needed in class. Projects will not be finished in class but Amee Runs with Scissors famous “Whole-Story Instructions” will insure that the projects can be finished at home.

Persephone's Sampler -

Class: $65. Materials fee: $75

January 26, Sunday, 10-4

 

How does your garden grow? With new skills.

 

Ribbon-work, with its rich colors and textures, is a marvelous way to add dimension and detail to garments, accessories and home-décor projects. Incorporate it into your bead-embroidery pieces, quilts or felting and achieve results ranging from delicate to dynamic.

 

Rather than working with pre-designed kits, students will be encouraged to help themselves from Amee’s “Bead Buffet” to select ribbons, stamens, buttons and beads. Traditional Victorian ribbon-work and contemporary kanzashi techniques will be explored as Adventurous Beginners learn how to make a Kanzashi Chrysanthemum, a Hatpin Rose, Five-Petal Flowers, Double-Ruffled Rosettes and Boat Leaves. These elements can be kept separate or grouped together, finished as pins or kept as appliques and can be used to embellish a hats, purses, shoes, throw pillows and more.

 

Students should come to class with a bead-blanket or bead-tray, a good pair of small-to-medium-sized, an inexpensive, disposable lighter, sharp scissors and any eyeglasses, magnifiers or additional light source they generally use for close-up work. Students are encouraged to bring an item they wish to embellish (hat, bag, shoes, etc.). Some students will finish their projects in class but – if not – don’t fret… Amee Runs with Scissors’ famous “Whole-Story Instructions” will insure that the projects can be finished at home.
