Boro workshop - July 14 11am

from 0.00

£12; Free for children under-16

Those that bring their own fabric scraps get a free hot drink from the Bookstore Cafe!

Make a ‘Boro’ patchwork coaster providing new life for scrap fabric.

The name for this technique comes from the Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use. Worn areas of cloth are patched over or older garments cut up and joined, with running stitches or areas of sashiko (running stitches sewn through layers of fabric), used for reinforcement and to quilt layers of cloth together.

Materials are provided; and participants are able to take away the sashiko needles to carry on sewing at home!

This workshop is part of the Waste-Less Market, and will be delivered by Lemuel MC and The Exchange.
