SASHIKO STITCH - RESTORATION & REPAIR
6 week ONLINE course - Starts week commencing 12th April until 21st May.
Choose from a Thursday 7.30pm - 9.00pm OR Friday 10.00am - 11.30am
In each week's 90 minute long relaxed zoom workshop I'll share some of my favourite techniques and my own personal hints and tips.
And together, with you, I hope to provide you with a community of supportive, like minded participants!
Sashiko is a Japanese folk craft that is hundreds of years old with roots in practicality. Sashiko means “little stabs”, and that perfectly describes the stitch.
The slow, meditative process of forming one stitch at a time is calming so I find Sashiko the perfect technique for a bit of relaxing, self care & quiet time! Personal restoration and repair if you will!
I'll take you through the basics of Sashiko stitching; ways the technique can be used to embellish or patch repair textiles, or as a decorative stitch in it's own right. We'll develop our own personal projects over the block of time, hopefully feeling a little repaired ourselves in the process.
