About

Tambour Beading, also known as broderie luneville, is widely used on the catwalks. Learn the couture beading technique in this exquisite design with textile artist Stephanie Bonneau. In order to do this 90-minute class, you do need to have done Tambour Beading before.

During the class, you will be stitching with seed beads, learn how to negotiate sharp angles and how to make the design lighter by stitching the beading in an irregular manner. You will be stitching sequins with tambour beading and create an exquisite flower. You will start the flower in the session but need to finish later in your own time, full instructions will be given for you to do so.
