Tambour work originated from Asia and is now a technique often associated with Haute Couture. During this one Day Class you’ll learn the basic technique of the Tambour Stitch starting with how to hold the hook, how to start and finish the thread, form the stitch using the special Tambour Hook followed by working in all directions. There will be a choice of designs provided for you to choose from allowing you to concentrate on forming the stitch and adding spot beads to your design working from the top.
You will be provided with Fabric, thread, beads, and worksheets. Tambour hooks and holders will be available to borrow or buy on the day.
No previous experience is required
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
This class will run from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU.
