“Nuitsugi” Workshop in Sonoma 2/4/2023
February 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$85
Through this “Nuitsugi” class, you will explore various mending techniques in the kimono-making process with Maki Aizawa. The sewing techniques are very functional and practical, yet by using the techniques of kimono making, they can be applied to delicate fabrics such as silk, fine thin cotton, and linen. Bring an item of clothing or a cotton tote bag to practice these techniques on. “Nui” means to sew, and “tsugi” means to connect. Let’s create something beautiful together! All levels are welcome. Maki will provide Japanese patching fabric.
- Needles (We will use a specific needle suitable for kimono-making)
- Thread (Silk and Cotton)
- Needle threaders
- Scrap fabric for patches
- A project to mend (such as denim/cotton/silk pants, dress and shirt, hat or bag)
