Boro Making with Leanne from Kimono House

The Japanese word BORO literally means ‘ragged or tattered’ and is a traditional example of patchworked fabric.  Historically in Japan, indigo and kimono fabric was truly precious and never discarded - old cloth was repaired and stitched together to make new items for every-day use.  In this class we will learn how to stitch, mend and quilt layers of recycled cloth to give them new life in this traditional Japanese way.
