        "Treasure" - Workshop with Lynn Payette

'Treasure', a pendant or pin, teaches the student unique techniques for working with different threads, sheer and metallic fabrics, nettings, handmade paper, and beads, as well as a fool-proof finishing method.

Student makes decisions for stitch and color placement to create their own pendant/pin.

Couching with Japanese gold, metallic threads, and flosses, techniques for the application of sheers and opaque fabrics backed with Wonder Under (an iron-on fusible web), working with handmade paper in a stitched piece, as well as a variety of beading techniques, will be demonstrated.

The student will finish 'Treasure' so that it can be used as either a pendant or pin.

Note:  Student will furnish their own neck chain, if desired.

Kit fee:  $60
