    I am delighted to welcome Juliet Ferry from Hand and Lock to the barn to teach Tambour Beading. Hand and Lock are expert practitioners of this embroidery technique popular on international catwalks and seen in shows by designers such as Elie Saab and Oscar De La Renta. Tambour beading also known as Lunéville or Crochet de Lunéville is a French Haute Couture technique where beads or sequins can be attached to a fabric. The embroidery is done with a special hook working through a fabric stretched tight as a drum. Over the two days, you will learn how to create a design, set up a full size frame and find out how to work the hook through the fabric without catching and then go on to learn technique. The hook is included in the cost of the workshop.
