Created and established by École Lesage Paris, this course confirms the mastery of the professional skills required for a “Brodeur Atelier d’Art” (“Artistic Workshop Embroiderer”) with respect to a list of requirements, based on an evaluation and certification system. “Brodeur Atelier d’Art” is a qualification correlated with a list of activities and skills on which the assessment is established (aptitude list in annex to this document). The qualification is issued by a panel from École Lesage Paris, the authority responsible for certification. It is registered at the RNCP (Répertoire national des certifications professionnelles) in the level 3 category. Attention: pending attainment! An initial encounter makes it possible to propose the course that best corresponds with your project and skill level. A schedule is then tailored to your availabilities and the remaining vacant seats. You are welcomed to one of the classes where you will participate in private group lessons. A teacher, focusing on six students of various levels, will initiate you into various artistic embroidery techniques and follow up on your work and step-by-step progress. A training course may begin at any time of year. The courses are either given in French or English, and are held Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. All the courses are valid for one year from the registration date. Courses are given in French; but for foreign students, they are given in English.
