Intro to Sashiko and Decorative Mending – POSTPONED!
March 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm MDT$40
BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 VIRUS, THIS CLASS HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WE WILL BE CONTACTING STUDENTS TO RESCHEDULE.
The traditional Japanese art of mending fabric is called Sashiko and it’s experiencing an enthusiastic resurgence in the era of Slow Fashion. Using a combination of patchwork and embroidery techniques, you can lengthen the life of a garment by repairing tears and holes or add a whole new personality to a pristine piece.
In this two-hour workshop, students will learn basic hand sewing techniques that can be adapted to create a wide variety of designs. Blending fashion and function, Sashiko techniques can easily be applied to hand-quilting, applique, as well as visible mending.
All materials are included in the price of the class. Students will take home Japanese Sashiko thread, a Japanese Sashiko needle, and scraps of fabric to be used on other projects. You are welcome to bring a garment that needs to be repaired or reinvented such as a jacket, shirt or pair of jeans, or just come and learn the techniques that can be put to use later.
