Ever wanted to learn the art of Parisian Haute Couture Embroidery and Beadwork!?  Now is your chance!  I am currently taking students to learn this age old technique usually seen on the Parisian Runways.  This is a beginner’s class to learn the basic stitches and create a beautiful embroidered sample fabric.

Introduction to Luneville Embroidery Project

Luneville (or Tambour embroidery as it is called in the US) is a hand embroidery technique that uses a small crochet like hook to work stitches one at a time on the underside of a piece of fabric that has been stretched across a frame.  In this three day class, you will learn the basic Luneville stitches using the Luneville hook tool.  The first day will be spent stretching the fabric in the fame, learning about Haute Couture embroidery and trying the basic stitches.  The second day will be spent learning more stitches that include stitching with beads and sequins.  The third day will be for finishing your sample fabric and learning some 3D stitches.  All materials for the class are included in the price.  Materials include, organza, Swarovski crystals, metallic threads, sequins, charlotte beads.  The Luneville hook and fame is also included in the class price.

After living in Paris, France for 5 years, and completing an apprenticeship where I earned a certificate in Professional Haute Couture Embroidery and Beadwork at Lesage (an atelier owned by Chanel), I have created this class to teach the embroidery technique that is used to create beautiful beaded and embroidered fabrics. Couture embroidery is seen all over the Parisian runways and I have translated what are usually seen on designs for Chanel, and Dior and will be teaching you to create your own beautiful, couture wearable fabrics.
