Thanks to many friends of ours, Atsushi is again able to host Sashiko Workshop in NYC. Atsushi established an LLC named Upcycle Stitches. This is the first workshop Upcycle Stitches LLC host the workshop in NYC. Please join this happy opportunity and learn our enjoyable Sashiko. Here is the detail of Atsushi’s Sashiko Workshop in NYC.
What does Atsushi’s Sashiko Workshop Offer?
In 3 hours of intensive workshop, you will learn how to use Sashiko long needle and a unique shaped Sashiko thimble appropriately. Sashiko is pretty simple to start. After all, it is just a form of hand-stitching. However, learning the appropriate technique how to use the appropriate tools would maximize your Sashiko experience.
It is an informative workshop. At the same time, Atsushi spends a lot of time on actual stitching. You will spend most of the time stitching the most popular, and the traditional Asano-ha pattern to make either Tote-bag, Placemat, or several coasters. The participants will receive all the materials and tools. No need to bring any tools.
