Sashiko: Decorative Japanese Mending Embroidery

Sashiko: Decorative Japanese Mending Embroidery with Penny Morgan

Sashiko is a Japanese technique that combines embroidery, patchwork, mending, and quilting. Explore the history, rooted in Buddhist textiles, and the folk traditions of northern Japan. Learn the basics of two types of sashiko and boro. Sampling exercises will be introduced during class, with some time for stitching. More work can be completed outside of designated class time and we will discuss mending on other fabrics like wool. Project will be a sampler that can be used as a table topper or made into a pillow.

This class is presented in collaboration with John C. Campbell Folk School and Lessonface. Class capacity is 30 students. Registration closes on October 12, 2023. Students are invited to attend a large group Orientation and Closing Ceremony to connect with various classes online.

Class: A Rose And A Rosebud: Simple Wool Applique and Embroidery

Penny was a very good instructor and I feel I learned a lot about the subject. I feel prepared to continue embroidery on my own. This was a very good foundational class.

Class: A Rose And A Rosebud: Simple Wool Applique and Embroidery

I have already shared my great experience, and encouraged others to look at the online courses. I'm signed up for two more! Penny was wonderful....the kit she sent was first-class, and the instruction was timed very well.

Very informative!

Class: Introduction to Wool Applique

I had signed up for a wool appliqué class at folk school but it was cancelled due to COVID so I was very pleased to see this free intro class. Penny fit in more information than I would have thought possible in under an hour. She said a class is being planned for the fall. If the date works for me then I will be signing up. She clearly knows the craft and I’d enjoy learning more from her.

The instructor is very knowledgeable about the subject she teaches. I came out of the class with better understanding of the subject and confidence to work on my own in future.

Broadened my knowledge of Sashiko, via presentation and hands on experience. Instructor provided materials to each of us prior to start of class, which was extremely valuable to extend the experience.

Class: Winter Bread Baking

The instructor was very knowledgeable about bread baking. For me, it was a bit remedial based on my previous bread baking skills. As with many Zoom-style of meetings, the annoying part of the class was when students kept their audio live and it kept interrupting the teaching. I know it was meant to be a community and casual, but in speaker view the screen constantly bounced from the instructor to other screens. Minor point, but very important in the quality of a class. Not sure if the fix is taking a moment to mute everyone, or more frequent notice by the instructor, but it would greatly improve the quality of the class.

Great



Catheryn M. on March 30, 2021
Class: Sashiko: Decorative Japanese Mending

Loved it! Learned a lot! I prefer in person though, on a campus, because there are too many distractions working from home. However I must say the cost of the on line class was very reasonable.



Anna . on March 29, 2021
Class: Sashiko: Decorative Japanese Mending

It was interested an well organized. The only issue I had is that I felt the teacher should have had a separate camera to demonstrate techniques. I took a design class the week before with Tommye Scanlin. She actually had three cameras to show different angles. It really helped.



Pat S. on March 20, 2021
Class: Sashiko: Decorative Japanese Mending

I loved it! Instructor very knowledgeable, a good teacher and open to questions. Enthusiastic, as well. Wonderful to have access to such a knowledgeable teacher without having to travel.
