Create beautiful flower designs and enjoy an introduction to Peruvian Andean embroidery, exploring the art and rich heritage of hand stitching in the Andes. This class is a window through which you will have an indigenous insight into the art of Peruvian textiles, their design, formation and coloration.
The class is taught by Bella Lane , orginally 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!
On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:
– Understand how to work technically this beautiful design step by step
– Explore a range of hand embroidery stitches and how to work the thread neatly
– Have the opportunity to study some indigenous costumes of Peru
– Participants can apply the same technique to your own projects

The class includes a special embroidery kit with: Natural baby lamb’s wool backstrap hand woven braid, authentic Peruvian embroidery threads ( Choose your own colours on the day) needle and instruction sheets.
The completed belt does not include metal buckles and eyelets. After completion of your embroidery you may need help from your local shoemaker to make up the belt.
