The gentle art of Japanese quilting has fascinated me for many years. I learnt the technique from my friend Rosemary Muntus in 1988 and in 1991 I was awarded two first prizes at The Great British Quilt Festival for a piece I made called Kamon 1. During this workshop I will introduce you to the delights of this technique. I have designed a lovely pouch using the Kagome design and a Sakura (Cherry Blossom) motif. I will discuss designs, demonstrate marking, hand stitching techniques and finishing techniques.
I will provide a kit with all the requirements needed to make the pouch which includes fabric, pattern, sashiko thread and sashiko needle. The cost of the kit is £20 payble to me on the day.
You will also need the following, please bring the items listed below:
A knitting needle for marking the design (approx 4mm or old size 8) or a Hera (Japanese marking tool)
Hand sewing kit to include pins, scissors, tacking thread, thimble etc.
Note pad, pencil, rule, paper scissors and masking tape.
