Karen Torrisi, a professional Tambour Beader will be delivery this exciting beading class. Karen Torrisi was awarded the Australian prize for the 2009 Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery. Tambour Beading is a hand beading technique performed with a hook in a holder. This holds a shortened French Cornelli needle, and is used to bead onto fabric that is stretched over a frame.
Samples and demonstration of the art of Tambour Beading are done in French Haute Couture Embroidery at Lesage in Paris. This is the technique used to embellish couture garments for the fashion industry in Paris.
This technique is rarely practiced outside of the Paris workrooms. The Sewing Room will be conducting introductory workshops to the art of Tambour Beading on the Saturday 6 November 2010. In this workshop you will learn to stretch your fabric onto a tapestry frame and the technique of creating a chain stitch.
