Embroidery with beads and sequins: how does it work?
During the basic course broderie d’art you will learn how to work with a Lunéville hook. This handy tool is known by this name because of the origine of this technique, which has been developed in the French city of Lunéville. With this special tool you may add -in a more simple and quick way- beads and sequins to a fabric. You work on a large embroidery frame on silk organza. The course will cover the following techniques:
- Mounting the frame
- How to work with the Lunéville hook
- How to fill with silk embroidery thread
- Working beads with the Lunéville hook
- Working beads with needle and thread

To introduce the basics of broderie d’art, I offer two courses of each two days: the Basic Course (Basiscursus) and the Advanced Course (Vervolgcursus). After finishing the basic course you will be able to start and finish small embroidery projects. The advanced course adds refinement to your techniques, and introduces some new materials to work with, like raffia and goldthread.
Thanks for the wonderful workshop! It was nice meeting you; the atmosphere was warm and friendly. Looking back on a relaxing stay in Haarlem. Lots of love, and see you soon! Dyanne
It was really inspiring spending two days together with Saskia and the other students. Thank you for your encouraging words when I was wondering what I had started, and your words of sympathy when I was celebrating my victories :). Driving back home from Doesburg I was full of energy! Now I am practicing a lot, in order to be well prepared for the next course next Friday. Ingrid
