Sashiko mending class
Saturday April 13, 10 am - 1 pm
Sashiko is a traditional form of Japanese embroidery. Considered a folk craft, it’s original intent was the reinforcement and mending of worn-out clothing. Sashiko is a simple running stitch, the name literally translates to “little stabs.”
In this class you will learn the art of Sashiko mending. You will be introduced to traditional Japanese designs, but you are free to add your own too. Instructor Tammy Everts will show you various mending techniques and styles. You can bring in your own mending project or make a sampler from provided scraps of denim and cloth. White Sashiko thread will be provided for this class. Other colours will be available for sale.
