Sashiko/ Hand-Stitching Workshop

Date: 

Saturday, August 31, 2019

Description: 

On Aug. 31 at noon, participants can learn the basics behind hand-stitching, as well as the stitches and patterns of Sashiko stitching. After learning the basic rules of Sashiko, participants will then be encouraged to bend those rules and develop their own stitching voice. Participants can learn the meditative and mindful properties of hand-stitching and learn to read Sashiko patterns. Students are provided with naturally dyed fabric for stitching on, along with Sashiko thread and other naturally dyed thread for stitching with, and students will leave with at least 4 stitched swatches. Students are also encouraged to bring a textile, home good or article of clothing that could use some hand-stitched embellishment or mending. Denim clothing, linen accessories and any medium-weight home good are perfect for this.
