Visible Mending: 

The Japanese Art of Functional Embroidery

Visiting Artist: Kate Eggleston

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

11:30am-1:30pm

$22 per student

Ages 10+

Instead of throwing away a beloved shirt or a well-worn hand towel, learn how to decoratively fix a hole or a rip by patching it. Boro (translated as “ragged”) is the Japanese tradition of using small stitches (or functional embroidery) to mend clothing and fabric. All levels welcome - previous sewing experience not required. Participants should bring an item of clothing or cloth that has a rip or hole in it that needs repair. All other basic materials are included.

***Classes are non-refundable

Frame Weaving Workshop

Dates:  7/26, 8/9, 8/16, 8/23, 9/6

4:30pm-6:30pm

$65 per student

Ages 18+

Participants will learn how to prepare to weave on a simple frame loom and finish a small piece. It is a simple weaving process which starts the participant on the road to working with an idea and executing it through fiber. Students will learn the essentials of weaving in a five-week frame weaving class. Learned components will be 'how to build a small frame loom', how to thread and weave on the loom.
