What’s it all about?
Sashiko is a striking style of Japanese embroidery, often utilised as a visible mending technique. In this class we’ll be combining sashiko stitches and patterns with the Japanese dyeing style of shibori – a bit like tie dye but also a bit more intentional.
Come along and combine art and textiles and you stitch your own patterns to be transformed through the dyeing process. We’ll be dying cotton tote bags so your creative work can be both functional and shown off everyday!
In this Sashiko and Shibori class Robyn will help you design, prepare, stitch and dye. All materials provided.
