Sashiko is a form of embroidery from Japan that was used by the working class as far back as the 16th century. Today it has evolved into a beautiful and decorative art form. The white thread on an indigo blue background gives it a distinctive look. It is made using large thread and big stitches that are very easy to work and see. Students will make a square of stitchery that can be made into a pillow or appliqued onto something else such as a tote bag.
