Sashiko Sewing Workshop

Revitalize Your Textiles with Traditional Japanese Techniques

Workshop Overview:
Embark on a journey through the art of Sashiko, a revered Japanese hand-sewing technique with a rich history. 
Sashiko transcends its practical purpose of mending and reinforcing fabric, embodying in contemporary times the profound Japanese ethos of 'mottainai' – a resonant call to cherish resources and stand against wastefulness.

In this workshop, led by our instructor Xiaoxiao from the highly popular YouTube channel Xiaoxiao Yarn which focuses on Sashiko, you will explore various Sashiko and hand-sewing techniques. Discover the art of applying patches uniquely, interweaving both functional and decorative sashiko stitches, and mastering efficient hand-sewing skills using the traditional Sashiko approach. By the end of this session, you will possess the unique ability to infuse new life into your cherished garments, adding a touch of individuality and style.
