Stitch + Style: Sashiko

Saturday 18 May 2024

Learn to repair and patch with sashiko

Join us for an afternoon of sashiko (a Japanese form of reinforcement stitching), guided by Siobhan McKenna of ReJean Denim. Experiment with fabrics to create a patch that can be used to repair a number of pieces, breathing new life into the clothes you already own.

All materials provided. If you have a specific garment in mind to patch, bring it along! Share your creation with the world @VADundee.

Presented in collaboration with Generation of Waste. The Generation of Waste exhibit will be hosted at Central Library, Dundee from 26 April to 14 June.

About ReJean Denim:

Based in the East End of Glasgow, the old heart of our vibrant industrial city, we make unisex denim jackets and accessories from 100% reclaimed materials. Each ReJean piece is completely one of kind, hand crafted using discarded denim which we deconstruct and reimagine into something new. Our sustainable denim jackets, inspired by traditional workwear, are designed to be unique, ethical wardrobe staples for all, because style has no gender or size limit.
