Sashiko, a traditional running stitch used for quilting and mending in Japan, has seen a resurgence in popularity. Its origins lie in the practical art of country folk mending their indigo-dyed hemp garments. Today, as we seek ways to counter the wasteful aspects of the textile industry, mending is experiencing a renaissance.

In this enjoyable and laid-back workshop, you'll delve into simple stitches, including sashiko, and learn various mending techniques. Bring along your jeans, jean jacket, or any other textile item you'd like to mend or embellish. Bring scissors and a piece of fabric that inspires you, or you can use the materials provided (the workshop fee includes most materials and supplies).
