Upcycle your favorite garments with sashiko mending technique!
Bring your favorite old clothing in soft denim, cotton or linen. Futatsuya will teach you basic techniques to mend and upcycle it. The workshop comes with patches of vintage fabrics from Japan, sashiko needles, a sashiko thimble, a skein of sashiko thread. You do not need to bring any tools, but you are welcome to bring you own sewing tools. We highly recommend to bring soft cotton fabric or worn-out denim. It is difficult to work with thick, hard cotton and linen, or brand-new denim. Please do not bring wool or silk fabric.
Indigo tea will be served during the workshop.
Extra vintage fabric swatches, natural-dye sashiko threads, and one-of-a-kind sashiko items made by the grand master, Keiko Futatsuya are also available for purchase after the workshop.
