In Person course - Deemouth Artist Studios Project Space, Torry, Aberdeen. Friday 17th May

10am – 12:30pm


Maximum Class Size: 6

Level: Beginner/Intermediate.

In this relaxed introductory in person workshop I'll demonstrate useful textile repair techniques using the 'Sashiko' form of stitching. We will look at reinforcing fabric and using the technique to patch repair holes or rips.


You will leave with knowledge of this useful textile repair technique and a small stitch sampler that you can use as reference for your own future projects.


You will cover the following techniques:

  • Getting started – setting up your work, handling threads, starting and stopping stitching
  • How to work Sashiko stitches for a repair or reinforcement


Materials to bring with you: For this course all materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own fabric, embroidery hoop, needle and threads if you wish.

Light refreshments will be provided. The day will include a short tea/coffee break.


What others have said about this course:

“Really enjoyed my Sashiko course with Fiona, learning from someone who produces such beautiful work herself.   I looked forward to my weekly sessions and will be keeping a watch on what other courses are coming up.”


“I loved this Sashiko course, very different style to other classes with Fiona, and a very relaxing new hobby!”
