Sashiko Sampler Work
A Workshop with Judi Mendelssohn
Saturday 15th July 2023
10.30 am - 4.00 pm
Sashiko is a Japanese folk-art that had its origins in the Edo period in Japan, and has evolved over centuries from a frugal necessity into the decorative art enjoyed today. The word Sashiko literally means 'little stabs', a reference to the simple running stitch employed in repeating or interlocking patterns.
The patterns created can use straight lines, interlocking lines and grids, curved shapes and during the day we will look at several different ones.
A requirements list will be provided but I will also have fabrics, needles and threads available.
During the session we’ll look at marking the fabric to create the patterns from grids, and stitching a variety of patterns so you can go home with either a selection of sample pieces or maybe a collection to piece together to make a cushion or small wall hanging.
