We all have a favorite pair of jeans, the ones with the missing belt loop and thread-bare spots from years of wear? Here is your chance to give your denim a new (and improved) life in this hands-on workshop exploring sashiko embroidery. Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style used for repairs and reinforcements while employing decorative design.

We'll provide all the supplies and instruction to mend, patch and customize your denim using sashiko methods. By practicing "mindfulness" through mending, we will create unique designs and patterns. Field trippers will go home with a their own sashiko kit, just bring your favorite denim pieces and be ready for fun!
