Frida Needle Case
with Siān Nolan

11th - 13th Oct. 2019

Siān is the author of a book comprising of beaded needle cases, each one is a tiny piece of art. Inspired by Siān’s visit to the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A, Frida is the latest exquisite addition to the collection, beautifully recreating Frida’s colourful indigenous Mexican clothing. You will learn how to cover a wooden form in tubular and flat circular Peyote stitch and use a combination
of RAW and Herringbone stitch to create the skirt; arms are made in tubular Herringbone stitch.
Frida’s head is specially sourced from Italy and is a beautiful hand painted porcelain bead. Siān will have these available for sale. Alternatively choose Emiko the Geisha, Leilani the Hawaiian girl, Darcey Ballerina, Blossom Flower Fairy, Make a Wish Wand
or Cedric the caterpillar. A requirements List will be issued in advance. Intermediate level.
