Event description

Description

This ticket is for students who wish to take both of my workshops - Intro to Couture Embellishment and Intro to Tambour. The first workshop is Sunday, September 8th, from 12pm to 5pm at Make Lemonade. The second workshop is two weeks later, on Sunday, September 22nd from 12pm to 5pm.

Intro to Couture Embellishment

This class lays the foundation for the next workshop, Intro To Tambour. Students are given the same materials and tools I use in my business and art. I share my tips and secret techniques developed and honed over 15 years in the industry. We begin with the process of setting up your frame, basic chain stitch, adding beads to the chain stitch and adding sequins to the chain stitch. Each student creates a tulle-backed frond/feather motif and sequin flower appliqué. Each student is also given access to companion videos that go over all techniques taught in class, as well as bonus videos for future projects, including little extra tricks for creating 3D effects with beads and sequins.

While no one will become an expert in beading in five hours, the course sets students up with the techniques and confidence to develop their skills outside of the classroom. Plus we lunch on amazing General Assembly pizza!

Open to all skill levels. No prior knowledge of sewing required. From total noobs who just want to learn a new craft to established designers looking to add another skill to their repertoire – this class teaches the basics for creating professional-looking embellishments.

Begins at 12pm, and runs through until 5pm at Make Lemonade, 326 Adelaide Street West, 6th floor. Students encouraged to show up ten minutes early to get settled at their stations.

Material kit includes:
– Snips
– Hoop
– Clamps
– Needle and thread
– Sequins, beads, etc.
– Fabric

Intro to Tambour:

The second in the workshop series uses the foundational techniques learned in the intro class. Students are provided with tambour hooks and three needle sizes. I take each student through the basics of the tambour beading technique using seed beads, pearls, bugle beads and both centre-hole and side-hole sequins. Students are also give access to companion videos that support the lessons learned in class so that they can master this technique, as well as the basics of planning and executing designs.

Begins at 12pm, and runs through until 5pm at Make Lemonade, 326 Adelaide Street West, 6th floor. Students encouraged to show up ten minutes early to get settled at their stations. We will munch on General Assembly pizza during the lunch break!

Students are required to bring with them the tools provided in their first workshop, including the hoop, clamps, and snips.

Additional materials provided:
- tambour hook
- disappearing ink pen
