About the Event
On Saturday, we immerse ourselves in the art of shibori, where the cloth is bound, wrapped, stitched and clamped to create patterns on fabric dipped in a natural indigo dye vat. On Sunday, we learn Sashiko embroidery, a Japanese textile mending and reinforcing technique involving a simple running stitch that creates beautiful yet practical embellishments used to mend clothes while also adding meaning and mindfulness to our work.
Included in the price: fabric (cotton, linen, silk), sashiko threads and needles, fabric marking pens, contained within a cloth bag. At the end of the workshop participants will leave with a variety of different shibori patterns, a binder of notes on how to do the different dye and stitch techniques, a sampler of sashiko stitches and potentially a finished artwork incorporating the shibori and sashiko stitches.
