Japanese embroidery (nihon shishu in Japanese) is a collection of embroidery techniques that originated more than 1600 years ago. Even today, both traditional and modern designs are being created with these methods, using silk fabrics and silk and metal threads. This class will be a `taste', a gentle introduction to the techniques, using the authentic tools and materials. Stitching two small seasonal designs (cherry blossoms and maple leaves) with flat silk and metals will allow you to try out this ancient artform with a small investment of time and money. Patience and attention to detail is more important than previous needlework experience. Hands-On Activity (e.g., Computer, Art)
