Sashiko and Boro

Haslach an der Mühl, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Two ancient Japanese textile techniques reinterpreted

The interplay of patches and embroidery creates casual, harmonious improvisations. This not only repairs items of clothing, but also enhances them into individual showpieces.

Not disposing of damaged textiles but recycling them creatively is sustainability in action and a decisive signal against the consumer and throwaway trend.
In the course, we will get to know the Sashiko basic stitch with its fascinating variation possibilities and deal with the skilful combination of materials and colours to make textiles artistic, but also durable and washable.
With a few simple basic stitches, you can create a wide range of possibilities. The simplest embroidery stitch in the world can be varied 1000 times and increased in complexity. Sashiko is meditative, decelerating, creative and - be careful! - addictive.
