In this workshop, participants will learn to use the simple running stitch and fundamental geometry to create satisfying, meditative stitching. After learning the basic rules of hand-stitching, participants will then be encouraged to bend those rules and develop their own stitching voice. Participants will finish the workshop with a stitched wall-hanging.
Students are provided with naturally dyed fabric for stitching on, along with Sashiko thread and other naturally dyed thread for stitching with, and students will leave with several stitched swatches and a finished wall-hanging.
Students are also encouraged to bring a textile, home good or article of clothing that could use some hand-stitched embellishment or mending. Denim clothing, linen accessories and any medium-weight home good are perfect for this.
