About Sashiko Clutch Workshop
Learn the Japanese art of Sashiko and make this unique handmade clutch purse. Amanda of Embroidered Panda (see below) and Megan Avery, the studio owner, team up to take you through making this unique project without a sewing machine.
In case you're not already familiar with it, Sashiko is a striking hand-sewing technique that originated in ancient Japan. In Japanese, its name means “little stabs”—a reference to the plain running stitch that makes up Sashiko’s geometric, all-over patterns.
This Workshop meets 2 times for a total of 4 hours.
All of the supplies need to make the bag are included when you sign up. If we need to ship it to yo, sign up at least a week in advance.
