Sashiko Stitching Class

Hosted by POST + Elizabeth Royal

Saturday March 9th from 10:30am to 1:30pm

If you have attended a denim mending workshop here - you'll love this class! Elizabeth dives deep into the history and practice of Sashiko Stitching.

A traditional sewing technique from Japan, Sashiko means "little stabs," which perfectly describes the distinctive running stitch that defines Sashiko's style.

During this small group workshop, Elizabeth will teach basic decorative Sashiko Stitching Techniques including turns, stitch spacing, tool use, and more. You will learn about the history of the art and how to use Sashiko in both a decorative and functional way.

Everyone will take home their own Sashiko sampler, and a beginner's kit including thimble, thread, and needles to complete the sampler and continue to develop the art of Sashiko embroidery on their own.


About the instructor:

Elizabeth Royal is a maker, mender, and photographer. She lives in a 1920's fixer upper in Detroit with her two dogs, two cats, and husband. During the day she's an instructional designer but after work you can find her tackling projects in her studio - photography, Kintsugi, and visible mending.



Please note:

No experience necessary.
This class is appropriate for ages 14 and over.
All tools/supplies/materials will be provided.
Refreshments will be served.
