Boro Book

One day workshop

Have you stitched on paper? Sashiko stitching in the Japanese boro style can be used to make attractive designs on paper. Boro stitched fabric grew out of the need to repair old Indigo dyed cloth in early twentieth century rural Japan.

This workshop will introduce you to different ways of stitching Indigo dyed papers to create beautiful mini artworks for the pages for your book. You will be guided to use the marks on the paper as a suggested design for your page.

You will learn some basic sashiko stitches.

At the end of the day you will take home a beautiful little book to keep or give to someone special.
