Hand-stitched "Boro" Coaster Set Workshop

Sunday 5/5 1-4pm $45

Hosted by Kathy Sward

In Japanese, Boro refers to rags; traditionally, items like quilts, clothes, futon covers etc. weren’t thrown away when they were worn out or torn - they were patched over and over again until sometimes the item was nothing but a rag, but actually a beautiful item was the result. 
All materials provided to make 2 coasters; including pre-cut fabric is for the front and the back of the coasters as well as little patches and sashiko threads to stitch on top to imitate a beautiful piece of boro.
