About this course

This course is an introduction to this attractive style of hand embroidery. Like many crafts of Oriental origin this is a simple but disciplined technique. It can be applied to many everyday items such as cushions, table runners and garments. Learn the designs through stitching samples which can then be turned into a simple runner or lap quilt.
No experience is necessary, you don’t even have to know how to thread a needle.

How will I be taught?
