Hosted in our newly built Garden Pavilion in the tranquil grounds of The Japanese Garden and presented by textile enthusiast & teacher Sue Crawley. This Workshop will focus on stitching with an Autumnal twist, taking in the changing colours of the traditional garden.
Boro means rags in Japanese. In the past people would patch their clothes and household textiles repeatedly, mainly using blue and indigo scrapes which were widely available. This would be done so often that all that was left was the repairs and little would be seen of the original item.
