* * AFTERNOON CLASS * * Stitch an “Andean Rose” with Bella Lane * *

Date: 17 February 2018 14:00 to 17:00


Andean embroideries are fascinating and inspirational works of art used on indigenous costumes in Peru and its mountainous neighbouring countries for thousands of years.  Join the wonderful tutor Bella Lane and master the technique in three hours in this mini master class, working and stitching a beautiful “Andean Rose” inspired by a “Festivity Pollera” (skirt) using original Andean hand embroidery threads. A perfect master class for the beginner to hand embroidery.

Bella Lane is from Iquitos Peru,  Master Peruvian embroiderer, trained at the Royal School of Needlework and a world embroidery stitch collector.  We are very honoured to have Bella as a guest teacher at Fabrications!

- Have the opportunity to study some indigenous costumes of Peru

Participants can apply the same technique for their own projects

- Students will have picked up some 'insider' tips and tricks from a master craft person
