Bring your favorite old clothing in soft denim, cotton or linen. Futatsuya will teach you basic techniques to mend and upcycle it.

We highly recommend to bring soft cotton fabric or worn-out denim. It is difficult to work with thick, hard cotton and linen, or brand-new denim. Please do not bring wool or silk fabric. 

 

Indigo tea will be served during the workshops.

 

Extra vintage fabric swatches, natural-dye sashiko threads, and one-of-a-kind sashiko items made by the grand master, Keiko Futatsuya will also be available for purchase after the workshop.
