Six-week class beginning September 19, 2021
Learn "Boro" stitching with small, indigo dyed pieces of cloth. In Japan, Boro (rag or scraps of cloth that are sewn together) used to be a symbol of an impoverished past. Now the term also represents an essential principle of rural ethics and aesthetics. You will explore your own imagery through cutting, patching, stitching, assembling fabrics into new modes of your personal visual expression. Sashiko will also be demonstrated - it is applied with a running stitch with simple and geometric designs. Small pieces of hand-dyed fabric with various shades of indigo blues (dyed by your instructor) are available to purchase in class.
