As promised, today we have released the second part of our stunning Beaded Coral Online class. We have been blown away by the response and are so pleased to see you all seem to love it as much as we do. If you haven’t got involved yet, don’t delay as the kits are selling quickly and whilst we will work to restock them, we don’t want to keep you waiting. If you bought a bundle on the release then you will have had the second class delivered to your email address already.
We are most excited to see what you go onto do with these 3D beading techniques once learnt as I’m sure you will agree, there is so much that can be done with these unusual and eye catching approaches.
Find the Classes, kit and combination bundle options exclusively on the London Embroidery School website and join our stitching community by making something beautiful with us from where ever in the world you are.
As you can probably see from our recent posts- we have been really looking forward to sharing our newest and possibly shiniest class yet- the Beaded Coral Online Class. This two part class covers over 20 3D beading techniques to take your embroidery off the surface of the fabric and to a whole other level. Using a combination of beads, sequins and embroidery cotton we will show you various combinations and approaches to these materials to manipulate them and create really interesting, eye catching effects.
As we will be using some specific materials, you will also need one of our Beaded Coral Class Mini Kits which includes all the materials you need to make your own glittering coral reef. As this class is at an intermediate level, it is those who have done some embroidery or beading so you may already have some of the below that you will need equipment while to complete the class:
–Velvet board – or bead tray or mat
If you dont have any of these items- find them in the specialist equipment section of our website.
The second part will be released next Friday 30th April which will complete the design.
We’ve built the base, it’s time to bring the beads. Part 2 of the Tambour Online class series is now available. Working with the most popular use of the tambour skills, adding beading into the equation ups the difficulty level as we navigate the additional weight, changeable stitch length, shrinkage and working that underneath hand. Starting off with a pack of practise beads we will work on the techniques before we apply the skills to our landscape design, incorporating round beads, seed beads and bugle beads, straights, corners, curves and fills.
If you haven’t got any idea what those things mean, start off the tambour 1 to fill in the gaps and catch us up. Those who got in fast and purchased the whole series as a bundle will have the class waiting for you in your inbox. Kits are going quickly so if you haven’t managed to bag one or have plenty of beads of your own, you can purchase the online class on its own. This comes with a downloadable version of the design template to use your own materials with and start stitching at home right away.
Check out all the options so you can just buy what you need. All the variations are explained on our website, follow any of the links for more info. Begin couture beading like a pro with the Tambour Online Class Series from the London Embroidery School.
We have added a new group to the Equipment and Materials section where you will find lots of pretty shiny beads, crystals and sequins for sale like the ones in the examples (as if you needed any inspiration)
More items will be added to make this section even more fabulous.
Also, there are still freebie needle packs to be scored with your purchase of any goods from us (Pony Sharps No.9, 20 needles while stocks last)
