Textile recycling has a long history in Japan. From the 17th to the 19th century, fabrics were expensive and scarce for the working class. Pieces of worn-out fabric (boro literally means "rag") were reinforced with sashiko running stitches and multiple layers of fabric were often sewn together to make the fabric warmer.
In this workshop, you will incorporate precious, worn-out and/or recycled fabrics into a contemporary piece of work. You will go home with a brooch and plenty of inspiration for bigger pieces such as bags and pillows.
The lunch break is from 12h30 until 13h30. There are several lunch possibilities at MAS and nearby.
