The Japanese practice of Sashiko has been used for centuries as a necessary way of mending and strengthening clothes and other textiles through functional embroidery, associated with the wider art of 'Boro'. Typified most recognisably by its signature white stitches on indigo fabric, it is often elevated beyond simple practicality to become a decorative form in its own right.
In this 2 hour workshop, Thom will introduce basic sashiko tools and techniques, and show you how to create patterns so that you can continue to explore this satisfying and meditative craft.
All materials included.
Tea and Biscuits, perhaps some cake?!
