Stitching for Mindfulness: Sashiko and Boro
(Exploring Arts of Japan Series)

This class has been be postponed. A new date and time will be posted here once it has been confirmed.

Date: TBD
Time: TBD
Registrations Deadline: TBD

Explore the traditional art of Japanese sashiko-style embroidery by creating your expressive pattern ideas. We will discuss the benefits of working with embroidery and the relaxation it can provide. We will also talk about how we can use sashiko and boro techniques to “mend” or repair our clothing and how upcycling can add personality to your garments.

After studying textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design, Alyssa Brieanne started an embroidery and textile studio. All designs begin with a hand-drawn image or painting that is then translated into embroidery. Each piece is a unique color and material investigation, incorporating textures and embellishments. Her work is whimsical, colorful, and playful. She is inspired by folk art and vintage textiles.

The instructor will provide a bandana to embellish if you prefer. Additional materials provided will be embroidery floss and thread. Feel free to bring your supplies if you like.

  • All students who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home and not attend class.
  • Students and Staff will wash and sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Staff will sanitize common areas and touch surfaces regularly.
  • We have optimized our indoor ventilation system to reduce the risk of germs and contaminants spreading through the air.
