Tyvek Embellishments and Beads

Join Linda in two videos where she demonstrates how to make useful and attractive embellishments for textile based mixed media work using a packaging material which is often simply discarded. You will probably already have most of the bits and pieces you’ll need to make the beads she uses for jewellery or to attach to hand made books as a decorative bookmark. Finally she distresses Tyvek to make fernlike appliqué motifs to upcycle an empty chocolate box.

There are two video workshops in this collection.

Tyvek Beads

Whether you have some sheets from a craft supplier, or packaging from the post, Tyvek is a great material for making beads to embellish your projects. Linda demonstrates the basic technique and how to make more elaborate versions with wire and seedbeads.

Tyvek Embellishments

Learn how you can recycle Tyvek into intriguing embellishments for your stitched textiles. Linda will demonstrate how to manipulate the surface with cutting and heat before showing you how she’s applied the embellishments in combination with stitch and beading.
