In this online version of our introduction to block printing class, you will create your own graphic or pattern design, then learn to transfer it to a Speedy Carve block to produce a linocut stamp. Next, you will experiment with using different water soluble inks and your new stamp as you print your image on a variety of surfaces, including nice cardstock, a Moleskine journal, and even a cotton tote bag! Each student will make one medium stamp and several prints in class, but will have the tools to make as many additional stamps and prints as they want!!

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.

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. We have our online video tutorial on Sashiko Mending for you to watch and refresh yourself after the 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

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.

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.

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...
