Boro / Sashiko Japanese Mending Workshop

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the Japanese style of mending called “boro” or “sashiko”. The technique combines layers of fabric and running stitch, combining bits of old cloth to patch and mend textiles. These fabrics were made by repurposing carefully saved garment pieces and other handspun and indigo-dyed fabrics to extend their use.

To register:

* You will need to bring a garment to mend and any fabric you might want to use. Other fabric for patches, as well as needles and thread will be provided should you need to use them.

Nancy says, “I have found the act of mending our much-treasured clothes goes well beyond repairing the physical cloth. By making the space and time we also mend our psychological wellbeing and this process can also physically recharge us. The act of mending provides time for contemplation and a moment to connect with the material object. And investing our precious time means we treasure and appreciate our garments.”
