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.
This design is inspired by arabesque seen in historical places and in trompe l’oeil seen in castles. This is a design of contrasts from the dark red curves to the white and iridescent beads used elsewhere
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!
Finished piece size is approximately 13cm (H) x 13cm (W)
Each kit includes: detailed instructions, glass beads (pre-strung), sequins (pre-strung), White Gutermann thread, multiple needles, two pieces of organza (a white silk organza printed with the finish design and a practise polyester organza) and some practice beads (pre-strung).
Embroidery scissors, an embroidery hoop or a frame, invisible bobbin thread, pins, a tambour hook and holder.
PLEASE NOTE: the tambour hook is not included as many people already own one and we don’t want to add unnecessary cost to the kit.
