Visible Mending with Elements of Sashiko

8 weeks – 1 hour, Wednesdays 8 – 9pm (Zoom)

This course is designed both for beginners and participants with some experience in stitching. It covers learning various aspects of modern visible mending. It also touches on traditional patterns and techniques of the Japanese art of Sashiko.[i]

All the techniques you will be learning can be applied to fix your favourite garments or can be a way to create a unique piece, which can be used as an appliqué or be made into a bag or a cushion.

The students will need to provide their own materials for the course, including a garment which is in need of repair (denim jeans are the best!) or a piece of medium-weight cotton/linen fabric, recommended sizes for a cushion cover project: 53cmx53cm or 43x68cm. For further information on what materials you will need for the entire course and suggestions where to get them,

[i] Japanese Sashiko is an art of functional stitching used for embellishment, reinforcement and mending of garments. Traditionally it involves white and various shades of indigo with only sparse addition of other colours. Starting experimenting with Sashiko, you can make simple forms like coasters, bags, cushion covers and also creatively mend your denim (and other types) of clothes.
