What You'll Get
Traditional Japanese boro cloths have a beauty like no other. Each cloth tells a unique story of its journey through life with patches carefully sewed on and reinforced with stitching, often over generations of a single family.
The cloths can be viewed to embrace the concept of 'wabi sabi', that sees beauty in an object's impermanence and imperfection.
We will be using modern Sachiko stitches, a functional running stitch for mending and reinforcing boro, that will create decorative embroidery.
Each repair becomes a creative challenge. It's a chance for the sewer to express themselves whilst also being an important time for contemplation and mindfulness.
Items to bring can include:
Use your creativity to mend any of these items or more:
- Jeans or Trousers
- A bag
- A quilt cover
- A cushion
- Canvas shoe
Supplies provided will include:
- different types of thread
- scrap fabric
- handout of stitches
