Spend a relaxed afternoon learning this beautiful and meditative form of Japanese embroidery. We will cover two styles of Sashiko (Moyouzashi and Hitomezashi) and talk about some of the histories behind this traditional craft. The sashiko kit provided will include instructions to complete either an envelope pillow or coaster samplers so you can put your newfound Sashiko skills to use!
With a fine artist’s sense of colour, a problem-solver’s sense of design, and a tree-hugger’s commitment to sustainability, Linnet Finley of Linnet Bird Designs offers soft, colourful, innovative products for kids, simple yet ingenious patterns for makers, and patient, joyful, empowering classes for those who want to develop their own sewing and handwork practice. Finley comes from a long line of textile artists and handworkers, and though she flirted with musical theatre, and detoured into environmental studies, she has arrived at a way to marry all her loves into one. Linnet Bird Designs is for those who prioritize locally handmade goods, and who look for a thoughtful approach to making.
