ONLINE Visible Mending Workshop
In this live, interactive, hands-on denim mending workshop, you’ll begin by learning the basic technique of sashiko, a Japanese style of stitching. Each participant will create their own sashiko style denim patch as practice, and then plan and begin a mending project to finish at home. You will learn about materials, how to prep a mending project, and traditional mending techniques and with some modern tricks to turn your jeans into wearable art.
A great class for beginners and seasoned hand stitchers alike, this workshop combines elements of texture, color and function to create your own one of a kind patch, or denim mending project. For this live, Zoom workshop, you will need to have access to a computer or smart phone.
***For this workshop, you can opt to purchase materials for the workshop for a $10 fee, which will be mailed to you. The workshop kit includes: a denim patch, 2 sashiko needles, beeswax tin, straight pins, perle cotton and sashiko thread (1 of each). ***
After signing up, I will email you all of the details, including what to bring, the link to connect, and a printable outline for the workshop. You will also receive a reminder email a couple of days before class.
