Young Students Class (June 24 - 27, 2013)
is an introductory course intended to pass on to the next generation the thousand-year old tradition of Nuido ("Way of Embroidery"). A focused atmosphere for study is maintained and parental participation is encouraged. Open to the children and grandchildren of current JEC members. Please contact us to find out if your child is eligible for our Young Students Class.
The Young Students Class initiates the novice into the exquisite art of Japanese embroidery. For the class, students will receive a free kit and will have the use of a Japanese frame, needles, and tools. (However, we encourage you to bring your own tools, if possible. Please be sure to at least bring your own small scissors, a cloth at least 30 inches square to cover your work, and a sack lunch!)
While there is no charge for the class, JEC does require a $90.00 deposit against the return of the frame and tools, which may be taken home to complete the piece. If these are returned within six months preserved in the same condition they were when received, your deposit will be refunded.

New (beginner) students in Young Students Class will work on "Small Happiness" A Blue bird indicates happiness hidden within each individual.
In Young Students Class, second-year (intermediate) students will work on "Fortune Crane." As you can see, this is a crane made by origami. They will take on challenges on more intricate techniques.
Children learned Nuido in absolute silence. They seemed to finish their embroidery designs faster than adults. It is just amazing.
A snapshot from the 2013 Young Students Class. As you can see, their designs are as stunning as upper phases. We will keep you posted for more pictures!
This is 13 years old boy's embroidery work... "Wow!"
He is tackling for couching techniques.
This 7 years old girl using all her concentration for threading the needle! So cute!
She is carefully stitching flat silk thread with tekobari, stroking needle. She finished whole design within four days! We are amazed about the potentials of younger generation.
For a contribution to the society as Nonprofit organization, 2014 Young Students Class was held from June 16th thru 19th.
It is amazing to see these young people creating beautiful pieces in several days!
This middle school boy is tackling for the cords of the fan. The stripe of pink and white gives really nice effect.
Here's another snapshot of 2014 Young Students Class. This elementary school girl has experienced Japanese embroidery for the first time and nearly finished at 4th day. The potential of youth is just incredible! The design is called "Flow in Spring"
This is the third snapshot of this year's Young Students Class.
It is her second year to take on a challenge for this class and her devotion really shows on her stitching. Our late master used to say "Hands are the Exit of the Spirit." Indeed, their earnestness and pureness reflect on their piece and in turn, creating one and only beauty.
