Sashiko Hands-On Demo Class
Sashiko (Japanese for "little stabs") uses the running stitch technique and is a relaxing form of hand embroidery. Sashiko is a great way to encourage children and non-crafters to join the world of needle arts!
Sashiko originated as a form of decorative reinforcement stitching (or functional embroidery) in Japan during the Edo era (1615-1868). Originally used to reinforce points of wear or to repair worn places and tears, Sashiko is now often used for decorative stitching in quilting and embroidery.
This hands-on demonstration class will introduce Sashiko to both new and experienced needle artists.
This workshop has a 4-student minimum class size requirement.
