Tambour beading Beginner: Day class

Tambour Beading workshops


You will be introduced to the tambour hook and how to control in all directions through the fabric. You will initially use the chain stitch and how to cast on and off the fabric. Later, more professional aspects will be introduced including beads and sequins.

At the beginning you will focus on the chain stitch on a transparent organza. We will work with the tambour hook, learning how to use in all directions, and cast on and off the thread without damaging the organza.

In the second stage we will introduce the bugles beads, learning how to apply them to create a design

Finally you will learn how to stitch the sequins using the « en riviere » stitch technique

The aim of this tambour beading class is for you to feel comfortable using the hook and how to apply beads and sequins to be ready to move on to the next level.

The class is pitched towards beginner students and the limited class size will allow you to develop at your own pace with plenty of one to one time with the tutor.

For more information please contact us using the form above.

I really enjoyed this class! Stephanie was so lovely which was really refreshing. She is also patient and very helpful. The technique was trickier than expected but feels great once you've cracked it. I would definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed my day with Stephanie, her teaching was excellent as was her patience. The art of tambour beading requires a lot of skill and practice. Her stories and knowledge from her very experienced background was really interesting to hear.
I am now going to practice, practice to perfect the skills she has taught me and am looking forward to attending the next workshop to learn more.
Thank you Stephanie for a wonderful day.
