This workshop project has been inspired by vintage textiles & craft collected by Leanne O'Sullivan of Kimono House Japanese Textiles & Craft. The collection includes kimono, boro, sashiko & samplers hand-stitched by generations across Japan.

Using several Japanese stitching techniques class participants will make a cloth sampler book to keep as a personal resource and guide for future reference in their own hand-stitched craft.

Instruction will include traditional Japanese stitched bookbinding technique & exploration of other Japanese hand-stitching used in kimono piecing, sashiko stitching and Boro style mending.

An informative half-day suitable for all skill levels as an introduction to Japanese hand-stitching methods. Class fee includes all materials.
