Product Description

Tambour Student


Join us in the beautiful Olde Towne East neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio on Saturday June 24th 2017 from 1pm- 4pm to learn the basics of this historic technique that is the cornerstone of couture beadwork. Tambour beading is a unique technique that allows the artist to apply beadwork to large areas much more rapidly than other hand beading methods.

In this introductory class, students will learn:

- About the best fabrics for this technique

- The differences in embroidery frames

- How to prepare the frame

- The best threads for tambour beading

- How to properly orient the needle in the tambour hook.

- How to apply beads with the tambour hook

- How to complete your work and apply it to garments


All tools and materials are provided with the cost of the class, this includes:

- tambour hook

- embroidery frame

- seed beads

- thread

- fabric

Prior to the class, students will receive a reminder email with the location address. We regret that due to the specialty nature of the tools and materials we cannot give refunds for the class. Instead, in cases of emergency, credit will be issued for a future class.
