Embroidery – Introduction to the Sashiko technique

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: ( 3) Level: Beginner Category: ,

Would you like to learn embroidery, the ancient art of fabric decoration, while adopting sustainable practices? Would you like to discover a decorative embroidery technique that can be used to patch garments?

In this 3-hour workshop, Clara takes us on a tour of techniques inspired by Sashiko (meaning “little stitches”), a traditional Japanese form of embroidery. Initially designed to reinforce work clothes, this hand-embroidery technique is now mainly used for aesthetic purposes.

By practicing on a cotton fabric, we’ll cover the basic principles of this age-old technique; the use of front and back stitches; and methods for creating regular lines and beautiful geometric designs.

Skills required: none, apart from a little meticulousness and patience.

Price includes all materials, Clara’s good humor and plenty of zen!

Clara était très gentille et ses explications étaient plus que claires. Je suis très contente de pouvoir repartir avec mon travail.
