Visible Mending Sashiko Style Sewing Party!
Do you have a favourite item of clothing that you’ve worn to an inch of its life but can’t bear to part with because its become like a second skin? Don’t despair – in this Visible Mending Sashiko Style Workshop we can make it strong again and even better looking!
Drawing on the Japanese tradition of mending known as boro (a term used to describe garments that have been patched many times) which utilises a simple decorative stitching method called sashiko, we will repair, reinforce and enhance your garment’s threadbare spots, holes and rips. Rather than trying to conceal the wear and tear that is the mark of a much loved piece of clothing, we make a feature of our mending by highlighting and embellishing these signs of age.
NB. If the scheduled time for this workshop does not suit you contact us to discuss an alternative time. A minimum of three students is required for the class to go ahead. If you have two more friends, family members or colleagues you think might like to join you for some fun stitching get in touch to book a private class.
