Aimed at the beginner who has little knowledge of the technique, this tambour beading kit introduces you to the art of Tambour Beading including chainstitch and the application of beads, buggles and sequins. This technique is worked on the reverse side of the fabric. Tambour beading is usually used in the Couture dresses seen on the red carpet or on the fashion catwalk. I personally like to use it with other techniques like Goldwork and it is still one of my favourite techniques. Detailed instructions can be found in each tambour beading kit and will show you how to work through the design step by step. Also included are hints and tips for the technique. The design is inspired by the colours of the sea with light blue, white and silver which combine to make the embroidery magical.  The kit is presented in a special kit box with ribbon so is a great gift for someone special but also a treat to yourself! Completed size is approximately 11cm (H) x 10.5cm (W)

What's included in the price?
