Class description:

This class is pitched at an intermediate level student who has already attended Level 1 in both Goldwork and Tambour Beading classes.

Please note that some pre-work for the class is required to allow for smooth progression during the class.  All padding and pearl purl gold and silver threads need to be stitched and all blue buggles need to be tamboured.  The kits can be sent to you beforehand with the reworks required.

The first part of the day will be to review the pre-work and to tambour the beads and sequins. You will also learn « the point de bouclette »

You will undertake gold work inside the essing with the gold purl. 

Finally, students will learn the technique “or nué” (a shading of colour threads covering a gold passing thread).

The aim of this class is to introduce a mix of the two embroidery techniques making them work together smoothly.

Please note that if you would like to pursue those techniques and move on to the next level it is recommended to practise tambour beading in between the classes.

This class includes a kit with black silk organza, blue glass beads and buggles, sequins, very fine pearl purls (gold and silver), gold rough purl, gold passing, and blue embroidery threads.

Please note that tambour hooks are not included in the kit and will be available to purchase separately.
