Join instructor Michelle Greenhouse for this introduction to meditative stitching. Students will make a small fabric patch study consisting of collaged fabrics. These fabrics can be scraps that you have lying around or something precious that has special meaning to you. Michelle will also bring some vintage Japanese fabrics.
You will use the simple practice of Sashiko stitching (the Japanese art of visible mending) to hold the fabric patch study together. During the class, you will pay attention to the fabric, the stitch, your breath and your surroundings. You will create a sense of mindfulness that you can bring into your daily life.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
- Vintage Japanese fabrics
- Additional fabric scraps
- Sashiko needles & thread
- Embroidery floss
Students are asked to bring the following materials:
- Any scrap fabric of their choice (optional)
- Embroidery floss or sashiko thread (optional)
- Embroidery needle or darning needle (optional)
No experience required.
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class.
