Mending Workshop: Loving Your Denim with Sashiko & Embroidery
Sashiko is a running stitch used traditionally for quilting and mending in Japan. Mending is having a renaissance as we begin to look for ways to counter the incredibly wasteful and harmful aspects of the textile industry. Sewing together has always been a way for women to connect and share. In this fun, relaxing workshop with Suzanne Northcott, you will learn simple stitches, including sashiko, and mending techniques. Bring your denim or other textile item to mend or embellish, scissors and a bit of fabric that inspires you or use some of the pieces supplied. Based in Langley, Suzanne is an interdisciplinary artist. Always a painter, she has moved through video, installation and photography. She has collaborated with poets, biologists and artists in other disciplines.
