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.
For one weekend, join Hand & Lock's expert practitioners to learn this couture embroidery technique popular on international catwalks and seen in shows by designers such as Elie Saab and Oscar De La Renta. Over the two days, students will learn how to create a design, set up a full size frame and how to work the hook through the fabric without catching before learning the technique.
