Needlework is a particularly diverse art form. The mastery of many techniques and knowledge of the processing of various materials, as they are taught in this distance learning course, form the basis for your free artistic development. You don't need a counting pattern or a fill-in-the-surface-by-numbers guide. Inspiration is the only spark! This can be a photo, a painting, a drawing or simply our imagination. At the same time, our tutorial is also an indulgence in the colors and textures of the many materials our market offers today. And at the end you can say:
This is my work of art
Created from A-Z with my hands
It's the greatest feeling in the world!
Use it to create practice pieces, as preparation for developing your own courses, to create a pattern book, as preparation for a course at university or the practical part of the journeyman's examination for the profession of Designing CraftsWoMan subject hand stitching. Or:
