Learn the history and process of Japanese Boro Stitching while creating re- purposed cloth and then constructing a cross-body bag.
Boro means, literally, "tatters". These were made by re-purposing carefully saved garment pieces and other hand-spun and indigo-dyed fabrics --- Makers used careful patching and sometimes intricate stitching to craft these textiles, mending the same item many times over many generations.
Bring a cherished or favorite garment that is no longer wearable and honor it by stitching a new object using the Boro stitch method.
Fiber Artist, Kris Smither, will guide you through the history and process of this mindful practice during a 3 session course to complete your bag.
