Art Deco Diva with Catherine Howell from Victoria

2 Day Workshop - Thursday 6th & Friday 7th July

Catherine is inspired by the stylish and elegant Art Deco period. After having a huge success with the gold and copper 'Art Deco Diva', she is creating an addition to this collection with an Art Deco Diva using the beautiful Peacock colours of emeralds and blues. This design will be postured differently to the original Art Deco Diva so that they can sit side by side on your wall, as if in an Art Gallery.

The Gold and Copper Art Deco Diva

Art deco used a lot of black so for this design Catherine has used a black silk background to show off this ladies showpiece of a dress lavishly created with gold and copper stitched feathers, it is adorned with goldwork sadi threads, sequins, beads and embroidery. If you love this period of fashionable art then this is the class for you.

Emeralds and Blues Art Deco Diva

This design, as elegant as the first, will be adorned using beautiful sequins, peacock feathers and shimmering beetle wings. Many new skills will be taught during this workshop which you will be able to use on your own designs in the future. 

Design Size: 30 x 39cm

Kit Cost:    $ 148.50  Please choose either the Gold and Copper or the Blues and Emeralds.

Skill Level:  All welcome but skills in handling metal threads an advantage

The completed design will be promoted on the website as soon as the finishing touches have been completed.
