Boro –a Japanese word meaning “broken: an aesthetic that is based on fabric or garments that have been heavily used, tattered, and repaired using darning techniques such as sashiko stitching.
Boro cloth lends itself to several trending movements such as sustainability (upcycle, recycle, circular design); visible mending (sashiko stitching, slow stitching) and mindfulness as people have become interested in more sustainable fashion and clothing.
Join this fun class to learn basic fabric collage (tearing and arranging and tacking) and running stitch. You’ll leave with a 6” x 6” patch and an understanding of how to repurpose that special piece of fabric or repair or embellish a beloved piece of clothing.
Students should bring scissors, and reading glasses if needed.
