Sashiko is a perfect technique for learning to sew by hand. It’s an ancient Japanese mending technique used to reinforce and mend worn fabric and is currently popular as visible mending for jeans. Techniques like this contribute to sustainable fashion by reclaiming torn, worn clothes. Sashiko is also highly decorative and suitable for embroidery projects like pillows, framed art, napkins, journal covers and others. The pattern is created by making series of running stitches that can be as simple or as complex as desired, making it a lovely way to learn hand sewing. This class is suitable for children 10+ and adults interested in a new embroidery technique, beginning hand sewing, visible mending. On Day 1 we will meet to mark a chosen pattern, learn to thread a needle and begin sewing, and with practice, learn to make even stitches and spaces for a pleasing product. The second and third Saturdays will be continued stitching. On our final Saturday, the group with share their products and celebrate with a shared charcuterie lunch. Classes will be held in the Botanical Center.
