The Japanese word sashiko means little stabs – which may sound violent – but this craft is totally about chilling out and stitching along the lines. The little stabs actually refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.

It’s super clever too! When you’ve chosen your pattern you’ll see how the stitches form a genius little pattern on your fabric. This is really the ideal craft for anyone who loves following a pattern and prides themselves on keeping stitches neat and tidy, it’s also very simple for all those stitch starters out there (aka beginners, that’s what we call them on the mean streets of Hackney Downs Studios, with a flat white in one hand and an embroidery needle in the other).

A very relaxed and beautiful craft that will have you feeling like you’re sipping a green tea next to mount fuji and being delicately showered in cherry blossom. Kawaii. In this class you will learn how to set up your patterned cloth and start stitching -feel free to bring some wine with you, this one is going to be seriously chill.

Choose from a selection of 8 different designs, all pre printed onto Japanese cloth 80% cotton 20% linen. Approx 30cm x 30cm. A sashiko needle and 20mt of sashiko 100% cotton thread.
