Classes are held in the winter and summer break, between the fall and spring semesters each year. Supplies are included with the registration of each level. The classes take place in San Antonio, Texas. The class minimum is 5 registrants, and a maximum of 24. Please note that class projects and colors are subject to change according to supply availability.
Level I – $800
In this class you will learn to set up your own frame, use both the needle and tambour hook to apply threads, beads and sequins, and the process for finishing the project. Techniques covered include:
- basic tambour and needle work (embroidery and beading)
- tight vermicelli
- padded stitching
- sequin application
- soutache edging
- applique finishing
Even if you do not complete the project in class, you will have all the information you need to finish on your own. It does not take any previous skill; we start everyone from the beginning. All supplies are included in the beginning project cost, including the beginning tabletop frame (13” -22”). If you would like to upgrade to a professional frame (36”), you can do so for an additional cost.
- Class fee: $800
- Please send a $300 deposit to secure your spot in the class
- The professional frame is an additional $100
- The class fee includes all supplies, but does not include travel, room or board
Step up your skills! This is an intermediate level class for those who have passed Level I. In this class, you will expand your experience with the tambour hook, and learn new techniques. Registrants must have level 1 experience. At this time, we have not worked out the project. As we finalize the design and techniques, we will post the information! If you are interested, please contact us to receive more information.
These are 2-4 hour classes held periodically throughout the year. The subject and content for each class changes on a regular basis. Most of these courses are for those who have completed level I. However, there are a few that are open to beginners, and will be marked as such. The classes take place in San Antonio. We only recommend these classes for locals, as the travel is not necessarily worth the cost for such a short class.
The short courses are priced according to the length of the class and the supplies needed. The price will be posted with the individual class listing. Contact us directly to register for a short course. It is not listed on the registration page due to the costing variables.
