building craft

November 5, 2012

 

Yesterday, I took a wonderful Sashiko workshop with crafts people Toshie Chigyo and Marico Chigyo at Textile Arts Center.  Of course, the tradition and the rituals of the technique are of the most interest to me. Sashiko is a rural Japanese stitching technique that manifests into artifacts, jackets and blankets that are layers of intricately stitched panels of cotton that result in a warm and durable garments. I am so interested in the idea of building a garment and the change that material undergoes with the rugged cotton thread.
