Sashiko is a running stitch used traditionally for quilting and mending in Japan. At its most elevated, it is a fine art form, but its humble roots come from country folk mending their indigo dyed hemp garments. Mending is having a renaissance as we look for ways to counter the wasteful and harmful aspects of the textile industry. In this fun, relaxing workshop you will learn simple stitches, including sashiko, and mending techniques. Bring your jeans, jean jacket or other textile item to mend or embellish. Bring scissors and a bit of fabric that inspires you or the pieces supplied (fee includes most materials & supplies). Note: the gallery is closed to the public during the workshop. All ages & skill levels welcome.
Cost: $45
