Frequently Asked Questions
I've done a little hand embroidery, is this course still suitable for me?
This course is a great starting point for learning many techniques of hand embroidery and textile art. But not only that, developing design skills is also a key element.
I'm a complete hand embroidery NOVICE, is this course suitable for me?
Absolutely! It takes you from the basics and builds your learning & skills step-by-step in short well-designed tutorials.
You will build your design skills and grow confidence in hand embroidery skills too.
Do I have to complete the TASTER course before I can buy this course?
Not at all, although most people prefer to 'dip their toe in the water' and work through the taster course first.
The taster takes around 15 hours practical time. This foundations course is around 40 hours of your practical time. BUT they both start from a beginners level of experience.
When does the course start & finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
You can come back and work through the exercises as many times as you want and will learn from creating more samples and playing with techniques and design ideas.
How much time will I need to spend on doing this course?
This is a practical course so please expect to take at least 40 hours working through the course lessons and doing the practical exercises. Take as long as you like. The more you practise and experiment, the more skills and confidence you will develop.
What if I 'fall behind' - is that a problem?
'Falling behind' doesn't happen in this course because you work through it at your own pace.
However, there are live Zoom social 'show and tell' sessions to provide additional support and encouragement so attending these will help you keep your momentum going so you keep going and TAKE ACTION to apply your learning.
What if I can't attend the live Zoom sessions?
Life happens. We are in different time zones. So please don't worry. These sessions are a bonus addition for course students. They are social sessions where you can chat through your progress or even 'sticking points' with other like-minded souls.
You are welcome to submit your specific course-topic related questions within the course, and our expert tutor will pop in and answer those for you.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? Well to be more specific, you have access to the course for as long as it exists online. You also get all updates too. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course across any and all devices you own.
If we decide to retire this course in the future, you will be given plenty of advance notification and be advised of what your options are. OK?
