Intro
In this 2 sessions online workshop happening on July 21 & 28 2022 you will learn how to make a unique piece of art to wear, using upcycled leather from used baseballs and many fantastic beads of your choice. (No experience is needed, but a certain proclivity for stitching is preferred).
In the first half of the session student will be shown how to“skin” a baseball (removing its heavy core) and to stitch the two halves back together using an embroidery needle and seed beads size 11. Talks about patterns and color combinations will also occur during the process of bead embroidery. 

In the second half of this session there will be a demonstration of how to secure a magnet inside the baseball (according to its purpose). The session will be completed with the demonstration of an entire baseball stitched back in place after being “skinned”, and filled with PolyFil. Students will complete the process at home in between classes. The instructor will describe how to attach a beaded rope to the baseball to make it wearable without a magnet (for the ones that are interested in creating a necklace). 

Participants must have the Zoom video platform downloaded on a computer or phone to participate.
 
Dates and hours:
July 21 & July 28, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm ET
Cost: $ 125
