At JEC, the second week of March saw the Advanced class - Phoenix by Ito Jakuchu for stitchers above phase X. This year’s Advanced Classes will provide the opportunity to experience the stitching by watching step by step live demonstration on screen.
There will be an another opportunity to learn this theme in UK in August 2017. The details will be posted very shortly.
This is a sample movie which will be covered during the class.

Today we would like to introduce Knots: round technique through video.
Knots, which were one of the earliest techniques used in embroidery in Japan, give texture to an otherwise flat work.
They may be used individually to indicate random pieces of pollen, or massed in the center of flower.
Knots may vary in size and shape, for they can be used round and with tails.
Also, if you are interested in taking this course which will be held from November 2 - 6, 2016

This is a very short movie of feather stitching of Peacock.
At the last Advanced class in March, we had around 23 stitchers from England, France and the USA. We were so pleased to see the Nuido family together for this very special project. We are honored to receive much positive feedback, though we feel the class was truly created and supported by everyone's positive attitude and will.

The Nuido exhibition at Oglethorpe University has ended with enormous success. However our Fractal Project continues.
Part of the Fractal Project has delivered to Japan several days ago and will be exhibited at Metro Tokyo area.
As there's a necessity to spread the awareness of One is Whole, Whole is One, we earnestly wish for Phase X and above stitchers to keep working on the project and sending us your new design ideas.
If any fellow facebook users would like to share the design of your country, culture, etc please contact us with link to that image from below page:
