Enrol in Sashiko Workshop
Course Code: ARTS1555
Japanese Sashiko (little stabs) describes a traditional mending/quilting technique of northern Japan. Historically evolved to meet the needs of the people in the poor and cold region, it has now become fashionable. Stitching most often incorporates heavier white thread on indigo dyed cotton. Learn basic Sashiko stitching techniques, explore pattern development and create a sampler: a collection of coasters, small trendy gift bags, or a 15-inch cushion top. Sashiko is a quiet, contemplative technique of stitching or quilting that encourages a Zen-like state.
