Event description
A hands-on workshop teaching the foundation of couture beading and embellishment techniques

About this Event

This class is the first in the series of workshops I offer in learning couture embellishment techniques. This workshop lays the foundation for the next two courses; Intro to Tambour and Tambour Master Class, but is great on it's own - you don't have to want to learn tambour. Students are given the same materials and tools I use in my business and art pieces. 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 The Cotton Factory Christmas Market is happening this same weekend! Stroll through the market before or after class, and munch on delightful treats during the break.

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 on Sunday, March 15th from 12pm to 5pm at Make Lemonade, 326 Adelaide Street West, 6th floor. And we will munch on General Assembly pizza for lunch!
