Come to see Atsushi in 2017 Fall Sashiko Workshop
As of now, we have Sashiko Stitching Workshop available on Saturday and Sunday.
- Saturday on 11th of November | 3 pm to 6 pm
- Sunday on 12th of November | 2 pm to 5 pm
The workshop is “Basic Sashiko Stitching Workshop”. This is a basic and standard workshop Atsushi provide for people who had not tried Sashiko in our (Hida) method. Not only the basic workshop is the prerequisite to most of Atsushi’s workshop, but it is also an eye-opening workshop for stitchers who have been wondering how to use a Sashiko long needle and a round shaped thimble.
Atsushi will demonstrate how to do it, teach you the tricks and techniques, and will stand & sit next to you to motivate you to learn how to use them. Unless you decide to give up, Atsushi will not give up teaching our Sashiko method. Even if you do not practice Sashiko for now, we believe our method will be very beneficial for hand-stitching lovers since it will speed up the stitching speed and improve the accuracy of stitches.
If you are interested or have been wondering what is the “appropriate” way to use long needle and thimble, or wishing to make your Sashiko more speedy and beautiful to complete a pile of your ideas, this is a great opportunity to get close to Sashiko. I am so happy to share what I have established.
Workshop will be full of Sashiko contents
The workshop is for 3 hours. 30 minute of a brief explanation of what Sashiko is and rest of time of practicing the Sashiko stitching with unlimited questions regarding Sashiko. Some Sashiko artworks by Atsushi & Keiko (Sashi.Co) and Boro pieces are going to be displayed for you to touch, enjoy and wear. Everything I display there will be available for purchase. In addition, Sashiko thread and other Sashiko tools will be available for sale with the special price for the workshop participants.
All you need to bring is yourself.
Sashiko materials such as Sashiko thread, fabric, needles and a thimble are included to the fee. In addition to these materials you can bring back with you after the workshops, we prepare some tools such as thread clippers for you to use in the workshops (Also available for purchase). Of course, you can bring your own sewing tools, but that is not necessary.
Also, there is no requirement for any experiences in Sashiko stitching. If you don’t know what Sashiko is, don’ worry! If you already in love with Sashiko, come show your love and learn something new.
