Mother’s day is just around the corner, and what better way to treat her than with the gift of a new skill!
We are currently offering weekend workshops in both tambour beading and beginners goldwork with dates approaching very soon, so perfect timing for getting those all important Mother’s Day present’s sorted!
Our Tambour Beading weekend workshop is running on Saturday the 12th of March from 10am to 4:30pm, and the Beginners Goldwork taking place on Saturday the 2nd of April from 10am to 4:30pm
This is the perfect gift for any mother who loves crafting, or just wants to learn something new, and can be an ideal day out to spend some quality time together.
If you’re not quite sure what you think she would like there is always the option of gift certificates for the London Embroidery School so she can choose for herself. Just search in the personalised gifts section of the site and choose the amount you would like to gift.
We are now taking bookings for both these workshops, so book now to secure your seats!
We have recently been adding some new course dates, including the Goldwork Weekend Workshop (with two dates to chose from) and the Tambour Beading Weekend Workshop in March.
During the 6 hour day goldwork workshop, you will be shown 4 goldwork techniques and two raising techniques, starting with the simplest to grasp and progressing onto the trickier ones as the day goes on.
The whole day will be enough to become familiar with the skills, however it requires practice to become proficient.
By the end of our tambour beading workshop which runs from 10am to 4:30pm, you will leave with enough assistance to continue your practice, and grow your skills to become confident with the technique.
Starting with the simple chain stitch will help you to become familiar with the initial technique before you can then move onto beads and sequins throughout the day.
With both workshops nearing closer, don’t forget to book your place before they sell out!
We are now taking bookings for our beginners goldwork evening course starting in January next year. You will be taught the basic techniques of an ancient skill, passed down through hundreds of generations. At the end of the course which takes place over three 2 hour evening classes, you will know how to edge a design with pearle purl, and fill it with a range beautiful gold materials introduced throughout the course. You will also be taught raising techniques, used to create a more impactful, three dimensional effect.
You will complete the course having learnt three new techniques that will be the foundations to becoming a master goldwork embroiderer!
We will also be offering an intermediate goldwork course in the new year for those confident with their technique to continue at a higher lever. For more information, see our blog post on Intermediate Goldwork.
We look forward to seeing you in the new year!

At the London Embroidery School we try to offer as many times as possible to come and learn embroidery around your other commitments, but if you find that the class times and days we have are not suitable for you then London Embroidery School can also offer private tuition.
This can be arranged around your own schedule and is much more flexible than our weekly classes. LES can offer office hours as well as evenings and some weekend classes (all subject to prior arrangement). All of these classes are held in our working studio.
These classes are ideal if you have a limited amount of time to spend in London for example if you are visiting from overseas and looking to fit in as much as possible in the time you have. Even if you are a little shy and feel you learn better one on one rather than in a group or work unusual hours, these private classes are essential. Students can arrange to have a one on one session or series of sessions with our practising, RSN trained tutor.
Private tuition classes are tailored to your needs and interests so if you are looking for an unusual combination of of experience then personal tuition is a good way to achieve that.
If it is something that you would be interested in, contact us and we can discuss your needs and availability with a view to booking you in.
The tuition is charged by the hour with a minimum of 2 hours per session, £45 during studio hours (Monday-Friday 10-5) or £65 for evenings or weekends. If there are a few of you looking to learn together get in touch as we can also accommodate small parties !
Looking forward to hearing from you all !!!
