Sashiko Hand Embroidery Class
This simple yet stunning form of Japanese embroidery is not only highly decorative but multi functional! It can be used to create amazing geometric designs on everything from cushion covers to tote bags and its also a great way to mend and repair garments (especially jeans!)
Join us for this 2.5 hour journey into the history of Sashiko and all the beautiful ways you can use it under the guidance of our embroidery tutor Helen. We will cover:
* Tsukuroi sashi (darning sashiko)
* Moyozashi (Decorative)
* Kugurizashi (Go through sashiko)
All materials are provided for this class so you don’t need to bring anything along with you on the night.
This class is suitable for beginners so no previous experience is needed to be able to come along. If you have any questions you can contact us at email@example.com.
I am a crafter through and through, but hand embroidery is the one I always come back to. I was taught by my lovely granny, because the school said they couldn't teach me as I'm left handed.
I find hand embroidery really relaxing as you don't necessarily follow a pattern and can just play and be creative.
