Join textile artist Diana Cathcart for an exploration into the Japanese art of sashiko hand-stitching. Born of necessity, this technique grew into an art form that produces beautiful, geometric patterns in white thread on an indigo cloth. It has been modernized as a visible mending technique that is often used to add decoration to torn jeans. Students will learn the history of sashiko, it’s traditional technique, as well as modern applications of the art. Participants will create several samples to take home and enjoy or to use in further crafting.
