Stitching Circle: Slow Stitching Sashiko Workshop

Sashiko meaning ‘little stab’ is the Japanese art of stitching beautiful patterns using running stitch. Often used to add strength, texture and warmth to old garments, Sashiko has become synonymous with complex repeating patterns and precise stitching.

Join Yiran Duan and learn how this meditative handicraft plays an important role in Chinese communities as a mechanism that supports mental health and social connections.

During the workshop, you will learn the history and cultural background of Sashiko stitching, become familiar with the principles and basic techniques of Sashiko stitch and design, and create 4 different patterns. Following the workshop, you will be able to carry out more projects by yourself in the future.
