Sashiko Visible Mending

  • 100 US dollars
  • Park Road

Service Description

Visible Mending celebrates resourcefulness and sustainability by showcasing hand stitching rather than hiding it. This workshop will highlight the act of mending with Sashiko Japanese Embroidery. With humble beginnings in rural Japan, Sashiko’s running stitch insulated work garments for warmth and longevity. Moving into contemporary times around the globe, the bold, geometric beauty of Sashiko continues to both strengthen and decorate fabrics. Students will learn how to patch and repair a rip or hole, reinforce a worn area, and prepare their distressed textile in order to draw a Sashiko grid and pattern of their choice. Participants will employ the “small stabs” Sashiko stitching technique to repair or embellish their project. Please bring in a few garments to assess for mending or decorating. Ideally, areas to repair will be no larger than four inches. Denim always looks great with Sashiko stitching. Medium- weight, woven fabrics work well, too; such as cotton or linen shirts, pants, cotton dresses, etc. In addition to mending projects, please your good reading glasses, snack and water bottle. $15 kit fee includes a pair of Olympus brand Sashiko needles, a needle threader, one skein of Sashiko thread, sustainable sourced patches, access to communal tools and materials.
