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.
Please bring your own clothes to practice the mending technique on. Your host will supply needles and Sashiko threads.
Sachiko's parents had a casual diner restaurant in Japan where she spent her childhood helping out and taking her first steps in her cooking career. Cooking is part of her family, a joy and a fascinating, creative passion that serves as a way to connect to society.
She's had many years experience teaching different cooking classes from knife skills and care to sushi making.
