Join us to learn the art of sashiko in this beginner embroidery workshop. Sashiko, which means "little stabs," is a Japanese art of stitching beautiful patterns using a running stitch. Nowadays, this technique is used more for decoration and embellishment. In this beginners workshop, you will work on a top/blouse of your choice to create decorative yet simple embroidery using traditional
sashiko needles and thread. You'll learn how to mark up a geometric pattern using markers and stencils and learn how to evenly stitch sashiko patterns.
Supplies including sashiko stencils, markers, threads, needles and instructions will be provided. You bring your own shirt to embellish: A box top/ T-shirt of your choice in a solid color (cotton/linen preferably).
*If you would prefer to stitch on 2 linen napkins, we can provide those instead. Email firstname.lastname@example.org when you sign up to let us know.
