Sashiko CORE & ESSENCE: In-Person Workshop – Group 1

July 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

In July, Atsushi Futatsuya will be teaching the “Core & Essence” of Sashiko in-person at our Berkeley Annex. He will be teaching traditional Sashiko and his stitching philosophies. This workshop is perfect for anyone who has wished to learn Sashiko but did not know how others can make so much stitching in a short amount of time. In this intimate workshop, you will have intensive stitching practice and receive hands-on instruction while seeing Atsushi stitch. (6 hour workshop + 1 hour lunch)

$350 general/ $330 WSN Members

Materials Fee: An additional $70 (cash or check) will be collected on site on behalf of the instructor for a Sashiko supply package necessary for the class.

Atsushi Futatsuya

Born into the third generation of a surviving Sashiko family in Gifu prefecture. He grew up with Sashiko, surrounded by thread, needles and lots of fabric. He launched the “Sashi.Co” project with his mother, Keiko, who has over forty years of experience with Sashiko stitching, to introduce their masterful works. Starting in 2017, he introduced the beauty and concept of Sashiko to the world through his storytelling and workshops.
