Are you looking for a new inspiring project to relax and reconnect with yourself?

Do you love to travel and would like a way to create art that reminds you of your joyful days?

Architectural hand embroidery will become your ideal answer!


Our passion for Architectural Embroidery was born in Paris. It was as if the buildings spoke to us, telling us their stories of what they had seen and heard... have you ever had that feeling? Of wondering and imagining what the walls have gone through the years?


Create your unique story stitch by stitch and let your mind wonder off free of judgement

With our hands-on Masterclass in Architectural hand embroidery you will gain the confidence and skills to explore the power of thread and needle further.

Follow along with the courses on your own version of the Les Volcans pattern inspired by Paris. At the end of the course you will not only have spent quality time with yourself but also have a one of a kind artwork to hang on your wall and feel proud of.

Passionate about creating with her hands, Elin began to share her embroidery journey on Instagram ( in 2016. Her work quickly gained large exposure, which has allowed her to dive full-time into the world of artistry.

In 2017, together with her husband Charles (@_charleshenry_), she started to teach their take on modern hand-embroidery in Paris, and has since then hosted courses in cities all over Europe. Since the beginning of 2018 they also released their first online courses enrolling thousands of students from all over the world. With their first-hand experience, they've realised the power of community and sharing your knowledge, which fuels the couple's motivation to improve and enhance creative learning via Charles and Elin Academy.

"I never thought I could like an activity like embroidery until I found Charles and Elin on Instagram. What they are doing is so amazing and so different from what I had seen before that I decided to try their ecourses and I can't tell you how glad I am. I've discovered a new hobby with the best teachers I could have asked for. The close-up videos and step by step process really made it perfect for me!"
