In this one-day workshop led by Glennis Dolce, we will be mending and creatively reusing the fabrics of our lives using sashiko stitching to make a cloth that can be used as a scarf, a wall hanging, or used for making some other useful item of your choice. The concepts of mottainai (don’t waste!) and mu kara yuu o umo (out of nothing, something is born) as it relates to boro textiles (tattered and stitch repaired cloth) will be practiced and discussed.

$36 members, $45 non-members. Bring a selection of your own fabrics or purchase the class materials kit ($35 includes fabrics and basic tools and threads; due to instructor at the beginning of class, cash only). Bring scissors, scraps, and a sense of wonder!

Limited to 20 participants. Museum admission included.
