Teacher: Tyler Peterson | Date: Sun, 09.08 , 10am-1pm | Location: SE Division Studio
Tuition: $125 | Materials: $15

Used for centuries by rural people in Japan to mend and repair clothing, sashiko evolved into a decorative yet thrifty way to reuse and recycle fabric. More info...

Sashiko is an everyday practice that is deeply tied to the values of Mottainai — translated simply to ‘don’t waste.’ 

In this one-day workshop, Tyler Peterson will share the basic stitches of sashiko mending. Tools, patterning techniques, historical context, and basic construction processes will be discussed. Students will leave with their own sampler of basic stitches, a partially mended garment and needles and thread to continue their new sewing skills at home. Students are asked to bring a woven garment or textile to mend using the sashiko techniques covered in class.
