About the event
Create your own coaster to take home while learning the art of Boro, a traditional Japanese visible mending technique that combines Sashiko and patchwork. The coaster can be constructed by hand or sewing machine. You will also be shown how to apply Sashiko stitching to mend holes and tears in jeans.
As featured on Season 8’s Great British Sewing Bee, Sashiko transforms denim from drab to fab!
All materials and tuition are included. A sewing machine is optional (you will need to provide your own). If you would like to try some mending on some denim, please bring in a pair of jeans too.
This introductory class is suitable for all*
Beginner sewers are very welcome.
*Children under the age of 9 will need parent/caregiver supervision
