Learn Sashiko, an ancient form of Japanese folk embroidery. The simplicity of little stitches running along a piece of fabric is unparalled.
Sashiko, or "little stabs", is an ancient hand-sewing technique that originated during the Edo period in Japan. This “folk textile” was traditionally used by women from fishing or farming families to mend, decorate and improve the lifespan of the clothes and household, as well as make winter clothing. Sashiko motifs are traditionally pleasing and geometric, such as waves, seven treasures, mountains, bamboo, and fences.
In this workshop, learn the zen art of sashiko like the times of ancient Japan. Crafters interested in hand embroidery would find this meditative and relaxing.
