Mumtaz Mahal was a Mughal Empress and chief consort of emperor Shah Jahan. The Taj Mahal in Agra was constructed by her husband as her final resting place, and Tony has created a design to celebrate this love.
This design, inspired by architectural details from the Taj Mahal, is a geometric etude worked in fuchsia, blue violet, acid green, and Japan gold. The design teaches complex multi-step flat patterns, crescents, Swarovski flat backed sequin attachment, bead attachment, light stitching for minimum coverage, tied sheaves, Bokhara couching, and other stitches and techniques. You will work with stranded silk, metallic braids, Petite Silk Lame’ Braid, Impressions solid, seed beads, and 10MM flat backed Swarovski square sequins.
In this 2-day project class, students will enjoy stitching and learning a little history at the same time.
