Pimp Your Jeans Sashiko-Style with Robyn

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

What’s it all about?

Sashiko is a striking style of Japanese embroidery, and Boro means rags - referring to the upcycled use of fabric. Come and learn Sashiko
embroidery methods, and other stitches, to decorate a comfy pair of jeans or a denim jacket!

Sashiko Boro is traditionally a style of mending, giving clothing extra (beautiful) life and wear. The stitches and patterns look so good that it can also be used decoratively. It's not that tricky, and well worth learning.

This class is beginner friendly. No sewing experience necessary.

All materials and tools provided, but bring along some jeans or a jacket to work on. Or learn and practice on sample fabric provided.
