This is a unique opportunity to learn couture beading with Charlotte Appleby The English Tailoress

This course gives an in depth approach to couture beading and textiles applied to haute couture fashion and interiors.

Learn how to create a solid framework for beading using silk organza. This technique can be applied to larger frames to eventually bead panels for a garment.

Apply beads to the frame using 2 techniques: Tambour beading- The main beading technique used in most fashion houses. A focus will be on the essential tambour chain stitches, creating a chain of beads. Once you get going, it becomes quite addictive! The other technique involves using a needle and is easily learnt.

A focus on using your newly found skills to learn to apply beads to fabric in the tambour technique and applying beads using a needle.

The introduction of 2 embroidery techniques will be taught to add more texture and excitement to the beadwork in progress. Please remember although you will be learning in a mixed technique group, your class is tailored specifically to your progress.

Beading and embroidery techniques learnt are combined and applied to a small design. All materials are included in price

Tambour hook, handle & frame can be hired for £15 or purchased for £35

Maximum 12 students per group
