Needlework is a particularly diverse art form. The mastery of many techniques and knowledge of the processing of various materials, as taught in this correspondence course, form the basis for your free artistic development. You do not need a counting chart or a filling-in-area-by-number instruction. Inspiration is the only spark! It can be a photo, a painting, a drawing or simply our imagination. At the same time, our course is also a revelation in the colours and structures of the many different materials that our market offers today. And in the end you can say:
This is my work of art
Created from A-Z with my hands
This is the most beautiful feeling in the world!
The seminar is suitable for: Beginners, re-starters, Sunday stitchers, needlework manicas and all those who cannot keep their fingers off the needle and thread and who enjoy every day. So for anyone who likes to work with needle and thread, who is as fascinated by the whole range of hand embroidery as we are and who is or wants to become part of the big world family of happy needleworkers. You don't need more prerequisites.
