Japanese Bead Embroidery
Japanese bead embroidery is a companion art to traditional Japanese embroidery, the techniques of which provides the foundation for the unique form of bead embroidery. The results are stunning pieces with the ‘wow’ factor.
Through further personal activities and drawing from her own experiences and embroidery knowledge, Margaret has improved on and incorporated other ‘best practices’ into her classes.
Those interested in learning this art now has an option to undertake one of the following programmes:
• CREATIVE BEAD EMBROIDERY
This is a certificated program developed by Margaret. The program comprises a selection of projects, at participants’ choice, from a range of designs identified as suitable for each level of study. See Curriculum for more details.
• JEC (Japanese Embroidery Centre) PROGRAM
This was a certified program and follows a set curriculum of designs, also with some option. On completion, participants had the opportunity to graduate and apply for teacher accreditation with JEC Atlanta, USA. However, JEC had since terminated this program.
