Techniques for Canvas Embroidery


This Individual Correspondence Course is an in-depth study of the various techniques used in canvas embroidery. Each lesson focuses on particular techniques that students will practice in order to learn and improve. The final course project will allow the student to apply what they have learned in a single piece. The stitched samples required in each lesson will be of a small enough dimension so that they can be completed within a reasonable length of time (2 months for each lesson).
