About this event

Robert W. Haven, author of “Tambour Beading and Embroidery” has featured his award winning work for the Behringer Crawford Museum in Covington KY, the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge Ontario, as well as at the World of Wearable Art Museum, in New Zealand. Bob has also authored various articles for Vogue Patterns as well as Piecework Magazine.

Embroidery and beading have been a significant part of the life of artist, and designer Bob Haven. In 1973 Bob’s interest in embroidery was first peaked with the PBS program, Needleplay with Erica Wilson. 30 years later Bob would be at the same institution of The Royal School of Needlework, having completed the concentrated course in hand embroidery. Additionally, Bob would be a guest artist, giving demonstrations on the current PBS program, Fit2Stitch! Whilst embarking on sabbatical in 2008 Bob completed the professional course of Haute Couture Embroidery from L’ecole Lesage in Paris.

Bob Haven throughout his career has taught both as a professor of Costume Technology and as well as a Tambour embroidery instructor for fashion schools in the US as well as abroad. Bob continues his practice from his home Studio in Lexington Kentucky.

Bob Haven will touch on the history and practice of using the techniques of Tambour work embroidery for the fashion industry as well as touch on his own methods of making and design.
