Boro Book



Learn Boro stitching, its history and link to traditional Japanese sashiko  while making a small, sampler book for future reference. Using pre-stressed fabrics of different weights and weaves as pages for a book, students will "mend" the pages using various fabric scraps and stitches commonly seen in boro work. We will finish the book during the second session by learning a traditional book binding technique applied to the fabric pages. The class involves homework stitching between sessions and discussion of creative and practical ways to apply boro work.
