Sashiko (translated to ‘little stabs’) is the term used to describe the beautiful, and historically functional Japanese embroidery, using white cotton thread on indigo fabric. Generating patterns from both nature and folklore, Sashiko has emerged from a mending or ‘reinforcement of garment’ ability once taught to Japanese girls as a way to determine their suitability for marriage, into a decorative and meditative stitching technique enjoyed by crafting and textile enthusiasts the world over.

We build so much shame around rejection and failure, yet it actually takes more courage to 'give it a go' than it does to avoid it all together. We need to learn how to embrace failure and make it our friend, so we don't miss out. Buddha tells us that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional, but when it comes to failure, why do we choose suffering? Even after we are rejected or criticised, we continue to pick at our failure wounds. This workshop will teach you failure first-aid.
In this workshop we are teaming up two of the best - Sarah Hankinson (Watercolour Wonder Woman) and Alisha Henderson (Contemporary Cake and Sweet Designer) - and together they will be making (can you guess?!) - WATERCOLOUR COOKIES! Edible Illustration!
