Sashiko Workshop – Sunday 17th March – 1pm-4pm
Sashiko, meaning ‘little stab’ is the Japanese art of stitching beautiful patterns using running stitch. Often used to add strength, texture and warmth to old garments, Sashiko has become synonymous with complex repeating patterns and precise stitching. Although most people will be familiar with the traditional white stitches on indigo fabric, sashiko thread actually comes in many shades, allowing for a wonderful variety of colourful designs. In this class you will learn:
How to mark up your patterns on fabric using a variety of pens and templates
How to stitch neatly and precisely, Sashiko is all about even stitching!
The rights and wrongs turning corners, crossing lines andintersections
