Festive Workshop - Shashiko
Tuesday 12th November, 6pm to 8.30pm | Cost: £30 | Host: Lara Hailey
Reste, 58 High Street, The Old Town, Hastings TN34 3EN
On this course you will learn the Japanese technique of Sashiko. It has been used in Japan for centuries, the word means ‘little stabs’ and refers to the small running stitch that is used to create a geometric patterned background. Traditionally Sashiko is made with white cotton thread on indigo cloth. It would often have been used to reinforce and repair worn fabric.
You will have a choice of what Sashiko design to use, then you will be shown how to transfer the pattern onto fabric, emphasising the correct way of stitching individual patterns and how to get the stitches accurate and consistent. Finally you will be shown how to turn your stitched Sashiko into a coaster that could be used on the Christmas dinner table or given as a gift.
The cost includes all materials, drinks and snacks.
