Event Details

Join our guest intructor, Rachel Barclay, for a day of serene stitching with an introduction to the Japanese art of shashiko!

Sashiko is a Japanese embroidery practice which uses a simple running stitch to create bold and geometric patterns on textiles. This stitching practice has been used for centuries in Japan and continues as a contemporary skill to mend, patch, strengthen, quilt, and embellish garments or home goods for longevity and beauty. With focus on exploration of the craft, workshop participants will learn how to handle thread, employ a Sashiko needle, and use “small stabs” to stitch designs onto their mini-patch samplers by Miniature Rhino.

The beautiful stitched squares can later become a pocket on a garment, pin cushion, patch, sewn together to be a pillow or turn into special coasters!

This is a guest instructor workshop which means there are no refunds/cancellations on class registrations, but you can send a friend in your place.

This is an extremely beginner friendly hand sewing class for ages 16+. Mature students younger than 16 may attend with a paying adult.

Materials provided:  All materials will be provided for you at this workshop, including your sampler fabric(a $22 value) and light refreshments!
