It is essential to purchase an embroidery frame for €90. It will enable you to pursue the embroidery work between two classes. Each training course breaks down into three-hour sessions. The price includes tuition, the learning piece, and all the required equipment and supplies for the course. 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.
