Inspired by the detail and complexity of flowers and leaves students will explore how to create these in paint and stitch. They will learn how to blend using freehand machine stitching, creating a smooth transition through colour and tonal ranges. We will explore interesting stitch techniques for petals, stamens, anther etc. creating depth and definition to each composition. We will create a silk painted background to set off this dramatic flower study.

JT-72 Tambour Bead Embroidery

 Skill level: Beginners
Non-member: $122.00
Materials fee: $30.00 (approx.) payable to tutor
Member: $89.00

Jan Timms is returning to Australia and Embroidery House to teach classes in Tambour bead embroidery. I would encourage anyone interested in this technique (including students who have previously attended one of Jan’s classes) to attend. Tambour beading and embroidery is also known as Broderie Chainette and Broderie de Luneville. This technique is the bead application of choice for costume and couture because of its speed and accuracy. With a mesmerising array of beads, sequins, embroidery threads and metallic threads available the design possibilities are limitless! During this class you will learn how to produce the basic chain stitch using the tambour hook. This basic stitch is the key element in the production of all bead and sequin application and embroidery. You will then move on to the application of beads and sequins.

To have a look at further stunning examples of this embroidery technique visit Jan’s website: https://tambourbeadembroidery.com

We are offering two classes – please nominate the class dates you would like to enrol in on your application form.

Dates: Class 1 – Wednesdays 7 and 14 November
OR  Class 2 – Sundays 11 and 18 November
Times: 10.00am – 3.00pm
Tutor: Jan Timms
