Boro is the Japanese word for rags! These much sought after recycled garments and bed covers were repaired and reused out of necessity. Spend a day learning all about these unintended works of art. Taking inspiration from my real Japanese Boro and new pieces I have made in this style to make a small piece of your own using new or recycled cotton fabrics with simple piecing methods and relaxing Sashiko style hand stitching.
· Indigo dyed Shibori or similar fabrics
· Any other indigo fabrics you may have and a little contrast fabric in red, green or rust colour works well too.
I will also have kits available on the day if you wish to purchase one which includes Vintage Japanese Fabrics, Sashiko thread and sashiko needle. Price £25
Sewing kit – scissors, pins, stitch ripper etc
· Note Pad and pencil
· Digital Camera (optional)
· Masking tape
