Sashiko: A Japanese Needlework Art

Join sashiko artisan Atsushi Futatsuya in this exclusive NCTA workshop.

This is a largely asynchronous experience. Participants will have exclusive access to instructional videos to learn at your own pace, small-group synchronous online meetings with Atsushi to help you as you create your project (scheduled directly with Atsushi in late Nov. through early Jan.), and a synchronous webinar on the history and practices of this traditional art. Participants will receive all the materials needed to complete one sashiko project.

Participants who complete the needlework project, participate in the synchronous webinar on sashiko history and practices, and submit a short reflection paper on lessons learned and classroom application will receive a professional development certificate of completion for 20 contact hours. Sashiko materials will arrive before Thanksgiving 2022, and the synchronous webinar will be on January 10, 7-8:30pm.
