This popular event is now full.

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese textile technique – a heartfelt slow art – which strengthens fabric through tiny, multiple stitches. Sashiko repairs fabric to give it a longer life; many people are now learning this beautiful, meditative and practical textile art form. Cortes Island Museum invites you to learn sashiko with Ayami Stryck in a workshop being part of The Suitcase Project exhibit (at the main Gallery until November 29).

Ayami Stryck:
I am a Textile Designer-Artist who loves to work with my hands. I am excited to share this beautiful art with you for your new and mending projects.

In this workshop, you will learn a little bit about the history of sashiko, basic sewing techniques, and use traditional Japanese patterns on your own choice of the fabric.

The workshop is limited to 12 people. Please register – call the Museum at 250-935-6340 or email to book your spot.
Our first workshop filled up quickly. This is a second workshop generously offered by Ayami.

The workshop is free, but donations are appreciated.

Japanese snacks will be available.

List of supplies is provided on our website
The supply kit will also be available for $15. If you would like to purchase it, inform us when registering.

Ayami Stryck is a cocurator, with Suzu Matsuda, of Another Day Starts From Here exhibit, part of The Suitcase Project installation, on in the main gallery until November 29.
