Boro (Japanese) are classes of Japanese textiles that have been mended or patched together. The term is derived from Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired.

Boro means, literally, “tatters.” These were made by repurposing carefully saved garment pieces and other handspun and indigo-dyed fabrics. These were sewn together as a patchwork built up from many layers providing extra warmth.

In this workshop participants will begin by creating a Boro Sampler to learn the stitching, patching and mending vocabulary of Boro.

Instructor will be Junanne Peck. [masked][masked]
