Sashiko on Denim

from 140.00

We love a modern application of a traditional technique, and what better way to make sashiko contemporary than to embellish your favorite jeans  with some sashiko stitching! 

Join sashiko stitching expert Atsushi Futatsuya, a third-generation sashiko stitcher, as he educates us on the history of the traditional sashiko running stitching, used to quilt, mend or simply beautify a piece of woven cloth.

Students will bring their own denim, mark out a pattern, and embroider using the traditional Sashiko stitching techniques. Students will leave with a wonderful project to continue on their own time.  

Please note, this is an Intermediate Level Class* 

*Because working with denim is a more complex technique, Atsushi requests that all Sashiko on Denim students have taken his Traditional Sashiko stitching course. Students are welcome to take the morning session Traditional Sashiko class before Sashiko on Denim for a full, immersive day of stitching.
