Celebrating Repairs: Sashiko

In this workshop, you will explore how to mend clothing by learning the traditional embroidery technique called ‘Sashiko’ turning an unwearable item of clothing into a decorative piece of art.

Please bring a ripped/damaged item of clothing to the workshop along with you. If you don’t have any to bring, there will be garments and materials for you to use for the duration of the workshop.
