The hand embroidery master class provides you with extensive knowledge of a globally popular craft and accompanies you on the way to your own idea. It’s a winding, wonderfully creative path that doesn’t necessarily lead to material wealth, but is an enrichment for one’s own creative power. The joy of manual work, the knowledge that you are making a very important contribution to the mental health of the world – the joy that arises from this outweighs all deprivations!
The focus of our master class in hand embroidery is on deepening the knowledge from one of the courses below, the combination of embroidery techniques, the use of “unusual” materials and the implementation of what has been learned. On the one hand, predetermined motifs and on the other hand, predetermined themes come into play.
Prerequisite for participation in this seminar is the successful completion of
Homage to Kandinsky – Canvaswork Lesson 2 Hand Embroidery Master Class – © Barbara (DE)
We always start with 2 introductory days, where we familiarize you with materials and techniques that are not yet widely used in hand embroidery. The variety of ways to dress traditional techniques in a modern guise contributes a lot to the enduring popularity of hand embroidery. The course content itself deals with perfecting traditional techniques that are the guarantee of success in the textile community. We encourage your own creativity and are happy that we learn a lot with every participant.
Use the course to prepare for the development of your own courses, to create a design portfolio, to prepare for a course of study or the practical part of the journeyman’s examination for the profession of Designing Crafts Woman / Subject embroidery
