Sashiko: A Japanese Needlework Art

Join sashiko artisan Atsushi Futatsuya in this exclusive FCCEAS NCTA workshop. Beginning in late May, participants will have exclusive access to instructional videos to learn at your own pace. In June participants will have the option to join small-group synchronous online meetings with Atsushi to help you as you create your project. Several required short readings on sashiko as well as discussion forums will be available on the workshop Moodle for the duration of the workshop. The workshop concludes with a synchronous webinar, tentatively scheduled for July 8, 1-3pm ET, on sashiko history and practices.

Materials needed to complete one sashiko project will be mailed directly to participants before Memorial Day. 

Participants who make progress on the needlework project, complete the short required readings, participate in the synchronous webinar on sashiko history and practices, respond to Moodle forum discussion prompts, and submit a short reflection paper on lessons learned and classroom application will receive a professional development certificate of completion for 20 contact hours.
