Purl Soho is thrilled to host third-generation Sashiko artist Atsushi Futatsuya for a very special workshop! He will expose you to the rich tradition of beautiful Sashiko embroidery,teaching the ins and outs of this meditative art with hands-on instruction. This workshop includes all the materials you'll need to complete an indigo printed pattern (which you can later turn into a tote bag, a pillow, a wall hanging, or whatever you like!). A full day of wonderful learning from a wonderful teacher, plus a midday break to explore neighborhood lunch spots... Please join us!
