What's Included

Instructor: Natalie Stopka, www.nataliestopka.com In this workshop, you'll learn all the basics of Sashiko embroidery, a traditional Japanese stitching technique used to mend and pattern fabric. Beautifully tessellating geometric patterns are created to both reinforce and ornament textiles with just a simple running stitch. In our two class sessions, students will hand sew and bind the edges of a small sampler quilt, bringing home the fundamental skills to apply Sashiko embroidery to large scale projects. -- All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. This class doesn't include access to free Open Studio. The Morning Series are short in-depth classes, focused on techniques and projects that students can easily continue exploring on their own, at their home (studio).

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 


Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
