Sashiko - Learn the art of visible mending

Saturday 25 March 2023 1.00pm - 3.30pm

Stitch! Crafts & Classes, 2 Hazelwood Lane N13 5EX

Have you been inspired by the Sewing Bee, to try the art of the Japanese mending technique of Sashiko?

Are your favourite garments becoming unwearable with holes and frays?

Are you keen to learn how to repair them rather than buy new ones?

We are all learning more about the resources required to make our clothes and the problems of ‘fast fashion’. With our very own Tricia Sharpe you will be be guided in this artistic visible way of mending and breathing new life in garments that would otherwise be left unworn or thrown out. Give your garments a longer life and learn how to repair them using the Japanese art of visible mending: Sashiko. You will then be able to use your new skills whenever required!

This is a class for all levels and so beginners and experienced stitchers welcome.

Learn about the background to Sashiko, examples of functional and decorative use of techniques, sample demonstration and practice.

What you need-

All materials will be provided for the class - some small fabric materials, needles, pins and threads to work with and an information sheet.

DURATION - 2.5 hrs

DATE & TIME - Saturday 25th March 1-3:30
