2022 Summer Teachers Class (Non-live online course, July – August)

*For this non-live course, you need to complete the assignments (Watch the video, upload photos, take the quiz, etc.) between the beginning of July and the end of August
One of the most important aspects of Japanese embroidery for teachers is to know about the background of Japanese embroidery beyond the techniques. Therefore, in the upcoming Teachers’ Class, we would like to focus on history, symbolism, color schemes, color dye, gold leaf, as well as how Japanese embroidery has evolved to its current form. We are also incorporating the content of Kurenai-Kai’s two-year teacher’s program with the intention of matching the Kurenai-Kai standards.
To unravel the mystery of color scheming, we are considering establishing a viewable slide on LMS so you can use it as a reference when you teach or actually color scheme yourself. For example, what is the pink color number used for cherry blossoms, and what is the difference between that color and the one used for plum blossoms,.
We are also having stitching time during the class, so all advanced stitchers are also welcome to participate.
Here are the options that you can choose.

Option 1: Your own projects (any JEC designs including fractal project) (NEW!)
You may start new pieces or bring your pieces in progress. If you will be able to share your design, we can explain the symbolism and the history behind it.

Option 2: You may bring any Teachers’ Class themes from the past

During the class, we will introduce the next Advanced Class design, which will be part of the Teacher’s Class program in order to explain the history, color scheme, and color dye as well as deepen the understanding and skill provided by Teachers Class.
The images shown for this registration are examples of ancient Japanese embroidery reproductions which will be used during the Teachers’ Class. We look forward to explaining their history and techniques.
