Sashiko Art of Repair
The workshop will be delivered online and will be interactive with the students
with the emphasis on the students learning new techniques and applying
their new skills.
The workshop will be broken down into manageable steps, knowing that students may not have much experience sewing.

Session 2: hitomezashi sashiko patterns
Session 3: how to apply these techniques to our own clothes - part 1
Session 4: how to apply these techniques to our own clothes - part 2
We will focus our time on how we can apply these techniques to mending our own clothes. This will be a two step process, first we have to sew on a patch, followed by implementing the sashiko stitches.
A kit will be provided with the fabric, sashiko thread and needles, fabric markers.
Other materials needed:
Paper / notebooks for taking notes
