Intro to Tambour Embellishment
A hands-on workshop teaching the foundation of tambour embroidery and beading techniques
The second in my workshop series builds on the foundational techniques learned in the Intro To Couture Embellishment. Students are provided with tambour hooks and three needle sizes. I take each student through the basics of the tambour embroidery and beading techniques beginning with the chain stitch, and then incorporating seed beads, pearls, bugle beads and both centre-hole and side-hole sequins. Students are also give access to companion videos that support the lessons learned in class so that they can master this technique, as well as the basics of planning and executing designs.
Begins at 12pm on Saturday, February 22nd, and runs through until 5pm at Make Lemonade, 326 Adelaide Street West, 6th floor. Students encouraged to show up ten minutes early to get settled at their stations. We will munch on
This workshop is designed for students who have already completed the Intro to Couture Embellishment workshop. It builds on and expands the lessons learned in that class. Students are required to bring with them the tools provided in their first workshop, including the hoop, clamps, and snips.
