I am in FL for 3-days long Sashiko workshop – and it is my first time to offer the 3-days long. Once I thought 3 days may be too long to “fulfill”. However, after completing the 2nd day, I realize I have enough messages to share for 3 days. I have lost a lot in Covid-19, but the year of writing every single day gave me time & challenge to verbalize what I would like to share. Everything is the same. I would need only 6 hours to teach the essence & core of Sashiko – however, in order to “talk through everything on top of technique”, I really appreciate this opportunity (I am pretty much repeating everything I share on SNS & Youtube, but it is good to feel the real-time feedback & laugh).

A matter has a different look by changing the angle or the side in how to look. Sashiko can be an Art, but not-Art at the same time. In order to stitch fast, one has to slow down first. It sounds philosophical, but in reality, it is very practical & I am here to share. I will try to enrich the Online Class Contents more for this summer. I have a lot to share. I can say with confidence more. Please learn Sashiko from us.

3日間のワークショップ、最初にお話を頂いたときは「長すぎるかな。どうやって時間を持たせようかなぁ」と不安になったのですが、いざ準備して、いざ本番を迎えてみると、3日間丸々ずーっと話し続けることができるだけの引き出しは、これまでの活動で積み重ねられているようで、とても充実した日々を過ごしています。充実しすぎて写真撮れてないけど。

完結に答えを出すだけであれば、そんなに時間は必要ありません。排他的な教え方をすればいい。ただ、今ある刺し子すべてを包括的に認めながら、且つ「コアになるもの」を丁寧にお伝えする為にはある程度の時間は必要なんだと思うようになりました。普段SNSで書いていること&配信で話していることと一緒です。ただ、やっぱり聞いてくれる人の反応を見られるのは嬉しいですよね。明日最終日。出せるものをすべて出してこようと思います。
