As you might know from other embroidery techniques, every new technique provides you with new possibilities once you master the principles of it. The focus in this online course silk ribbon embroidery is precisely that: getting you started with the main techniques so you can find and make your own interpretations. Beware … soon you’ll discover you have a new addiction! The technique of silk ribbon translates into other materials as well, which makes it an interesting adventure.
During this course you’ll get acquainted with the basic principles of silk ribbon embroidery. By making small samples with every technique, you create your own small portfolio as a reference for later use.
Choose your first project, both available in pink and blue: a tissuebox or a small purse. You will be guided step-by-step, with text and pictures, on your way to create your first silk ribbon embroidery.

I highly recommend this course for anyone involved in couture. Besides for couture this technique makes a wonderful added technique for art-quilters as well.
