The 2017 courses covers a wide range of topics.
Our 2017 class series covers a wide range of skills from creating unique embroidery materials to learning the basics of crochet de Luneville used by the Parisian ateliers. Each class is taught over a period of 3-hrs, one or two evenings during the week in midtown, NYC.
Because of the uniqueness of this skill-set, most of the course materials used as well as tools are imported directly from Europe. All course fees include the cost of the materials, tools, and lab/teaching fees. The only thing you will need to bring is yourself and a pencil.
We hope to see you in one of our courses soon!
