This typical Japanese symbolic design of carp is one of the challenging design we recommend for Nuido members. There are so many variety of color combinations that a stitcher can think of. Also, it is quite interesting to know the symbolism behind it!
We will be having a class for this design in Cambridge, United Kingdom in June 2015.
We will be posting more details later.

Rising Carp Class at Cambridge, UK
This five day class will be held from June 12 - 16, 2015 in conjunction with Teachers class and Phase X class at Kaetsu centre, Cambridge United Kingdom.
The design for the advanced class is “Rising Carp”, as shown in “The World of Kurenai-Kai” on page 62. We modified this piece using dye so there will be no need for superimposed work unless you prefer to do so. It will also be suitable for those phase 3 and above. The cost of the piece will be dependant on the choice of material and of the design selected.

This is a sneak preview of Advanced class which will be held at Cambridge, United Kingdom from June 12 - 16. We will use Realistic Effect for the cherry blossoms. Seriously, there are so much enjoyment in this design, Rising Carp!
Here is another closeup snapshot of Rising Carp design which will be held at Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The Weft foundation layer technique in different colours are applied. We are using heavy weight threads to create the volume.
Numerous experimentations are anticipated during the class.
This is a third snapshot for Rising Carp Workshop sneak preview at Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The woven effect is applied to the tachibana orange. The technique conveys the impression of a woven surface using a fairly tight twist. Perpendicular to the yellow orange silk threads, half hitched #1 gold is layed over.
This technique is further explained at page 81 of "Japanese Embroidery The Techniques Based on Nuido":
Five-day class for Rising Carp design was just held at Cambridge, United Kingdom. We tackled on new holding expressions on foundation layer.
We are finished with Rising Carp workshop and Phase X class and are getting ready for the Teachers class starting from tomorrow! We are at University of Cambridge, UK
We had several nice authentic English dinners with class organizers and class participants (with big dessert, of course). We Thank you all for letting us come to the United Kingdom for teaching! We truly wish for the further expansion and deepening of Nuido in UK
In the class, we have teachers participating from France, Germany and Italy as well.
We were touched by each individual's earnestness and devotion towards Nuido.
During Teachers Class at Cambridge, United Kingdom (June 18 - 21, 2015), we instructors were dazzled by the several new expressions and experiment which each stitcher tried on dyed fabric.
"Koma" or spool you seen on the picture is used to tie down the non-stitchable thread such as Katayori (bumpy twist).
The final step, stamen stitches and knot techniques for pollen, are applied. We are very happy with the overall impression of cherry blossom in "Rising Carp"
