The Japanese have perfected the art of mending treasured objects in a way that makes them even more treasured, never more so than with ancient garments. Originally a way of saving precious fabric and garments, Sashiko has become the quintessential way to extend a garment's life.
Now that there is a trend for recycling, upcycling, and slow fashion, this class will give you the skills to identify how to mend your most treasured garments so that their lives and loveliness is extended with your own particular creativity.
Bring a garment and some scraps of fabric for mending to learn this ancient Japanese art of mending.
