Intro to Sashiko- Inspired Visible Mending

Makers,

Tomorrow, join us for Intro to Sashiko-Inspired Visible Mending! In this introductory class to visible mending students will create simple but unique exterior patch repairs and/or embellishments to their denim or medium-weight twill garments, inspired by the ancient Japanese tradition of Sashiko stitching. We will consider environmental effects of our throw-away clothing culture, as well as the concepts of “slow fashion,” “mindful mending,” individuality, and responsible sourcing. Each student will leave with 2 patches (provided), written materials for home reference, and inspiration to turn their current wardrobe into something special instead of something trashed.   Ages 13 & up (accompanied by an adult) are allowed. This class is open to all skill levels. Interested in learning more about Sashiko-Inspired Visible Mending? Check out this YouTube video before signing up.
