This traditional Japanese sewing technique lends itself beautifully to contemporary crafts. Sashiko is the perfect stitch to mend existing garments and embrace the creative opportunity in repair while extending the lifespan of our wardrobe. In this workshop, we’ll discuss traditional sewing techniques like Boro, Sashiko, Kantha, American Quilting and embroidery alongside their modern applications in Visible Mending and Slow Fashion. We’ll also consider “Mendfulness” and the need to shift our wardrobes towards more personal and less perfect. This workshop will lead participants through the making of one Sashiko potholder while sharing various inspiration for continuing beyond the classroom. Participants will also have the opportunity to mend one existing garment with the instructor’s assistance so they can leave the workshop with greater confidence and skill. (Denim jeans are great options for visible mending.)
