The class is open to anyone interested in Japanese Embroidery. No prior experience in embroidery is necessary. It may be helpful to have some stitching background; but, Japanese Embroidery is so different from other forms of embroidery that prior knowledge is not required. I will also mention in passing that there is no age limit. However, you should be aware that the embroidery takes the ability to concentrate for long periods of time in a sitting position.
The one thing that is required is a sincere desire to learn the embroidery and a commitment to the task! Master Saito and Mr. Tamura strongly believe that once begun you should see the task through to the end.
In class there will be students of different levels of expertise and different phases of learning. Anyone who has taken a class elsewhere may continue it here, or start a complete series. The Phases of the classes from Kurenai Kai must be taken in order. New students will be accepted when there is a vacancy.
