With Nao Motomatsu & Miho Suzuki
These workshops introduce two very different styles of embroidery: sashiko and seed stitch. Each method asks for intentions, be they therapeutic, meditative, or reflective; and each method’s distinctive way of creation elicits its own experience in our spirit, perhaps leading us on a journey to find our own center.
The workshop will unfold over three Sunday afternoons:
- November 20: Sashiko mending – its history and techniques. Participants will work with two 4-1/2″ linen squares and plant-dyed cotton thread.
- December 11: Seed Stitch. Participants will work with two 5″ linen squares and plant-dyed silk thread.
- January 8: Embroider a Book Cover. Each participant will create their own design to embroider a small project. Participants will be provided a 4×5-1/2″ notebook, plant-dyed or natural linen fabric, and plant-dyed silk thread.
No previous experience is required for the Sashiko and Seed Stitch workshops. Embroidery skills are required (and the Sashiko and/or Seed Stitch workshops are highly recommended) to participate in the Book Cover workshop.
Enroll in any one workshop for $65, or all three for $165.
