About the Course

Creative Couture Tambour Beading Course (5 days)

Course Outline:

Learn the Couture technique of tambour beading in our week long course at London Embroidery School.

This intensive stitching week will take you through all the basics you need to know when working on tambour beading.

At the start, we will focus on the essential tambour chain stitches. Learning the knack of the hook through the fabric and then the process of creating the loop stitch which is the basis of all tambour work. We will then focus on casting on and off which is an essentials skill.

Once you have got the hang of the stitches we will focus on using your newly found skills to learn to apply beads to fabric in the tambour technique. This can be your own design if you choose or we will help you create something to work on your newly found skills.

Finally we will teaching you the skill of applying sequins in the tambour technique. Dependant of your progress you may also have the option to learn tambour satin stitches other techniques produced with the tambour hook.
