Japanese Boro Inspired Workshop. Saturday 4th March 2023
10am - 4pm
If you love denim, reusing fabrics, and hand-sewing, my ‘Japanese Boro Inspired Workshop’ will show you how to design and make your own totally individual collaged and hand stitched panel to display.
We will be looking at images of antique Boro garments for inspiration and using a variety of old and new denim, cotton, linen & Japanese printed fabrics from my collection.
You are welcome to bring along any of your own fabrics to incorporate into your piece.
We will collage and piece the fabrics together, using Sashiko needles and a range of simple embroidery stitches and threads (including Sashiko): a wide range of blue colours as well as white, cream, grey, and black threads.
The panel will be suitable to hang up with dowelling, or you could frame it, or make it into a bag or cushion cover yourself.
The workshop includes all materials, fabrics, needles, threads, and wooden dowelling.
Please bring along a packed lunch.
There is a fridge and microwave available at the studio. Refreshments, snacks and homemade cake will be provided on the day.
Please let me know if you have any food allergies or dietary requirements.
