Full Story
Press release as follows:

Stitched Up! From Sashiko to Manga
The World of Sashiko
30 June 2009, from 6.30pm

Sashiko Quilting

Sashiko is a traditional sewing technique of Japan, similar to quilting and characterised by geometric patterns of white stitching on indigo coloured cloth. In this illustrative lecture, Textile Artist and Researcher, Michele Walker, will explore the significance and uniqueness of Sashiko textiles in a cultural and historical context, looking at the technical aspects of how they are produced, as well as their social bearing. At a critical time, when the last generation of traditional Japanese Sashiko makers and their skills are being lost, this is a very timely opportunity to find out more about this traditional craft, now classed as Mingei, and its very special place in Japanese heritage.
This event is free to attend.

Venue: The Japan Foundation
Russell Square House
10-12 Russell Square
London WC1B 5EH

Booking info:
This event is free to attend but booking is essential. To reserve a place, please email the title of the event you would like to attend, along with your name and those of any guests, to event@jpf.org.uk.
