Visible Mending

Spend an afternoon learning the ins and outs of traditional Japanese textile repair—the tradition of sashiko and boro. Together, we’ll learn about the rich history of these techniques and how they transform ripped or torn garments into works of wearable art. By creating your own sampler, you’ll begin to master the sashiko stitching method and use boro patching techniques to great visible mends on your own clothes, linens, and more.
