Gift a loved one enrolment and the chance of acquiring valuable skills in hand-embroidery and thread-painting

  Enroll in Course

What better gift to give a loved one than the opportunity to learn a new skill? Hand-embroidery has increased massively in popularity over the past couple of years and we completely understand why!

The process itself is both highly meditative and the ideal creative outlet for anyone eager to create with their hands. As opposed to other art-forms, embroidery is the ultimate medium for travel-lovers or people on the go. No need to have a large desk and consecutive hours to dedicate to the craft. With embroidery you can sneak in some stitches on your commute to or home from school or work. Or perhaps snuggle up in the couch with a hot cup of chocolate, some lit candles, good music and let your thoughts drift away to faraway places with each stitch.

Thanks to the team at teachable our courses are accessible at our student's preference: When, where and on whichever device preferred!
