PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In this online version of our Sashiko Mending class, you will learn about this beautiful, ancient Japanese embroidery technique which was originally developed to strengthen quilts and kimonos, and lengthen the life of textiles. Sashiko, which translates to "little stabs", traditionally uses white cotton thread on dark blue indigo-dyed fabric. A single running stitch is used to create lovely geometric patterns that can be used to decorate fabric or reinforce ripped denim. You will learn how to properly execute this running stitch, and transfer geometric designs onto indigo-dyed linen. Our instructor will guide you in the creation of your own sashiko design sampler. Once everyone has the technique down, the instructor will demonstrate how to apply this sashiko technique to your ripped jeans in order to repair and reinforce areas where the denim has torn or frayed.



How to attend this online class: This class will be taught via Zoom video call. You may download Zoom for your desktop or mobile device here. You will also need an internet connection strong enough to stream audio and video. After you register for this class, we will email you a link with details on how to join.



Supplies Needed: For this class, you will need one of the WorkshopSF Sashiko Mending Kits. One of these kits is included in the price of the first ticket option. Once your ticket is purchased, we will email you to confirm your shipping address atleast seven days prior to class time and ship the kit to you promptly. Shipping normally takes 1-3 business days. IF you already own a WorkshopSF Sashiko Mending Kit, you may select the ONLINE CLASS ONLY ticket option. ALSO, for extra credit, we encourage you to have a pair of ripped jeans on hand so you can practice your new repairing skills with a teacher present!



Prerequisite: There is no prerequisite for this class. However, we suggest that you watch our online video tutorial on Sashiko Mending prior to attending this virtual class in order to familiarize yourself with the tools and materials involved. That said, information provided in the tutorial will also be reviewed in class.



Instructor Bio: Fueled by a long time desire to avoid jeans shopping at any cost, WorkshopSF sewing instructor and DIY Jack of All Trades Hayley learned the art of sashiko in order to keep her jeans in rotation for what some have called "too long". She now has become addicted to sashiko mending, and swears she owns at least one pair of jeans somewhere that lack rips or sashiko. Of course, no one has ever seen them... Check out photos of her sashiko magic on Insta at @pretzelegant_sashiko

In this online class, fine artist Becca Schillinger will teach you how to paint beautiful galaxies, night skies, planets, and deep space using some of her favorite watercolor techniques! You will begin with a discussion of the best tools and materials for watercolor painting, followed by a short intro to basic principles around color theory as well as how certain colors are used to evoke certain responses from the observer. Next, you’ll dive in and start learning to use color blending, gradients, wet on wet washes, and even pencil drawing techniques to render night skies, nebulas, and other celestial bodies.
