The Best Living Japan Intermediate Aizome: Needles & Stitchwork Class builds off of the skills from the Intro to Aizome which is a prerequisite for Intermediate. We will learn various Japanese stitching techniques which work as a resist when the fabric is dyed. We will work on a large piece of 100% linen cut into sections to allow for multiple practice patterns. All materials will be provided. If you have eye glasses please remember to bring because we will be threading needles.

Open to all students 14+ years and above.
