Join us to explore Japanese inspired patchwork piecing and stitching techniques.
Through hands-on projects, learn about a variety of traditional techniques and how to incorporate them into your own work.
Boro, Katazome, Sashiko, Shibori, Indigo and Ikat .
Japanese craftsmanship has been admired for centuries. Delve into the rich history behind these beautiful techniques and textiles.

Some topics we will cover in the ten blocks of instruction will include piecing, patternmaking, boro mending, and sashiko stitching.
Through hands-on experience, you will leave with an appreciation of the past and a fresh perspective on your next phase of art making.
We will be teaching for a focused, intensive week in a stunning 500-year-old palazzo in the town of San Gemini in Tuscany. This magnificent home is located right in the village. The views from the terraces will provide inspiration. The gardens are impeccable. The kitchen is a chef's dream. And we have hired a local chef to prepare authentic Italian meals. There is a pool to relax by after a long day in the studio. Excursions are planned into San Gemini to gather inspiration and materials (and gelato). Together we will immerse ourselves in creativity, learning, and relaxation.
