Patch and cook with sashiko
17 Oct at 09:00 - 14:00500 SEK
Sashiko is a traditional Japanese repair technique based on stitches. The early use of the technology was developed to strengthen and repair utility textiles at a time when nothing was to be wasted. Over time, sashiko has developed into freer forms and also become a strong aesthetic form of expression. In this workshop, the participants are introduced to the sewing technique sashiko with its history, materials, technology and pattern tradition. Participants get to try how to make their clothes and everyday textiles and to make free compositions with sashiko. There will also be exercises with test examples in smaller fabric. Feel free to bring some everyday clothes to make and pieces of cotton fabric. Also bring scissors, embroidery thread, embroidery needles if you have them at home. There will also be materials on site. The workshop is given in connection with the last screening day for the exhibition "Mottainai - An exhibition on recycling" and is led by textile artist Takao Momiyama. It is suitable for both beginners and those who want to learn more about sashiko.
