About this Event

(NOTE: TICKET PRICE IS FOR BOTH CLASSES, EVEN THOUGH TICKET ONLY LISTS ONE DATE. )

INTRO TO COUTURE EMBELLISHMENT - SUNDAY MARCH 15TH, 12-5PM

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!

Material kit includes:

– Snips

– Hoop

– Clamps

– Needle and thread

– Sequins, beads, etc.

– Fabric

INTRO TO TAMBOUR EMBELLISHMENT - SUNDAY, MARCH 29TH, 12-5PM

The second in my workshop series builds on the foundational techniques learned in the Intro To Couture Embellishment. Students are provided with tambour hooks and three needle sizes. I take each student through the basics of the tambour embroidery and beading techniques beginning with the chain stitch, and then incorporating 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 on Sunday, March 29th, 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!

This workshop is designed for students who have already completed the Intro to Couture Embellishment workshop. It builds on and expands the lessons learned in that class. Students are required to bring with them the tools provided in their first workshop, including the hoop, clamps, and snips.

Additional kit materials provided in this workshop:

– tambour hook

– additional beads to work with at home

– fabric
