Kogin-Sashi Needlework Workshop
We will have three guests at this moment.
Now it's three seats only available!
For lovers of Japanese culture and history, Kogin-Sashi is art steeped in history and for creative minds and nimble fingers, having a Kongin-Sashi Needle Workshop is something you should consider taking part of.
What is Kogin-Sashi?
Kogin-Sashi is a one of needlework that features geometrical pattern of stitching on clothes. This art craft is originated by unknown farmers in Aomori Prefecture, northernmost area of main island Japan, around the Edo era. In this period, farmers were not allowed to wear cotton because of sumptuary law by the domain who governed the area.
Female farmers somehow managed to weave hemp clothing which was producible in such a cold district and start stitching Kogin for the purpose of heat-retention and reinforcement.
Kogin-Sashi isn’t just an art, it is a way of life and a means of expression!
What to expect?
At the Kogin-Sashi Needlework Workshop, you should come with a heightened expectation to understand more about the Japanese creative arts.
We also give you a little background of Kogin-Sashi. If you have never tried needlework, don’t worry to join us as this workshop is designed for beginners
In this workshop, however, you should expect to make a cute framed needlework. This would be done with the finest fabric, and you’ll understand ancient Japenese techniques.
