Sashiko is a Japanese traditional stitching and embroidery developed to mend, reinforce and decorate fabric.  

In this class, you will learn to make "asano-ha" (hemp leaf) patterns with running stitch and go home with a fabric large enough to make a tote bag, placemat, patchworking, or your own project after the workshop. 

The workshop comes with:

- Sashiko needles

- Sashiko thimble

- Skein of white sashiko thread (approx. 145 meters)

- Sashiko Thread Bobbin Paper

- Indigo fabric with asano-ha patterns printed on

- Interfacing and Cotton Poplin fabric for tailoring the project at home

- PDF data of extra Japanese Traditional Sashiko Patterns

- Access to Atsushi by e-mail with questions regarding the workshop and follow-up

You do not require previous stitching or embroidery experience to take this class. All tools are provided. You are welcome to bring you own sewing tools, but not necessary.

*Workshop tickets are non-refundable once your purchase is completed.

Additional sashiko tools, including hand-dyed sashiko threads, needles and skeins are available for purchase during the workshop.
