Boro Sashiko Embroidery Workshop and Dumplings

Embark on a journey into the artful world of Boro Sashiko! Join Sachiko of Kinome Japonica and learn this traditional Japanese fabric mending technique.

Boro Sashiko reflects a philosophy of valuing the history and stories embedded in the fabric through its patches and stitches. This sustainable practice also has a unique visual appeal that will bring a touch of Japanese tradition to your clothing.

Join Sachiko for this unique workshop where she will share her love of crafts and offer inspiration from her family's kimono-making traditions. Blow Water will also be serving their signature dumplings! Vegetarian and vegan options will be available.
