Service Description

A lovely relaxing workshop to explore some of the beautiful techniques used within the Japanese art of sashimi stitching and boro mending. A chance to delve into some history and culture, using age-old techniques that are essential in today's repair and re-wear culture. In this class we will help you plan out your design using your favourite scraps of materials and incorporate the traditional toro mending techniques to create a bespoke hand crafted piece to use where you wish - as an appliqué on a bag or a repairing patch. All materials and patterns for the workshop will be provided but should you wish to incorporate your favourite textile scraps please bring them along!
