Two-Part In-Person Workshop: Sashiko Mending
$35 general, $25 for members and students
Sashiko is a method of visible mending originating in Japan during the Edo period. In this two-part workshop, Learning Hub Assistant Allie Davis will help you mend a garment of your choosing, while giving you some of the historical and cultural context behind indigo dyeing and sashiko.
After the two sessions, you will have a mended piece of clothing, or the capacity to finish mending yourself!
Part 1: Saturday, July 23, 2022. 4pm-6pm EST.
Part 2: Saturday, July 30, 2022. 4pm-6pm EST.
We will provide:
- Sashiko needles
- Cotton thread
- Cotton patches
- A metal thimble
You will learn:
- Pattern planning (we will have sashiko patterns for reference, or you can create your own).
- Hand-sewing – running stitch and back-stitch.
- A bit of the history and cultural context of indigo dyeing and sashiko stitching.
This is a beginner workshop – no prior experience necessary!
