A mindful workshop for adults. (Please note this is for age 18+) an introduction to the art of Sashiko (刺し子, lit. 'little stabs') - a Japanese embroidery / decorative stitch that can also be used for repair.

In a world that constantly encourages us to buy more, it's time to take a stand against the consumerist frenzy of Black Friday. Instead of mindlessly spending on new clothes, let's shift our focus towards the art of repair.

By choosing not to spend but mend, we can make a powerful statement against fast fashion and its detrimental effects on both people and the planet. Let's reduce fashion waste has been my mantra for almost a decade & is an act of rebellion against throwaway culture.

Come join me at the Soul & Flare studio space for a casual workshop, whether you're a sewing novice or a major league stitcher. This workshop is to be a creative expression, messy or immaculate, however you want to be.

This is a Sashiko for repair so the idea is to bring along your own item of clothing that is in need of a stitch or 2 whilst I guide you. Oh & not to mention I am offering this workshop for FREE.

Few things to know:

Workshop starts at 6pm-8pm

The item of clothing you bring needs to preferably be denim or cotton & is either holed or wearing thin alternatively I can provide a patches that you can practice on.

Bring warm clothes & a hot water bottle as it is a little cold here!

All materials, equipment, hot drinks & good vibes will be provided by me.

Location: Unit 9, Sneinton Market Avenues, Nottingham

Limited spaces available.

Committing to the purchase of this FREE ticket means you will be available for the time stated above. Please let me know if you cannot make the workshop as soon as possible so I can offer the space to someone else.

No parking on site - parking available Stonebridge Road which is a short 5/10 minutes walk from the studio.
