LOCATION: Karijini Visitors Centre
Sashiko is a Japanese stitching technique meaning little stabs and was traditionally used for repairing or reinforcing worn clothing. Sashiko uses geometric patterns created by long lines of running stitches and is traditionally done with white thread on an indigo fabric. Modern day Sashiko stitching is not restricted to white on indigo but rather uses a variety of colour combinations. Traditional Aboriginal art designs are often geometric in nature and using inspiration from geometric or abstract shapes the Karijini landscape is the starting point for this workshop. You will receive a 15cm Have A Go Modern Sashiko Kit to start your slow stitching journey.
