Teaching classes inspired by Japanese Boro cloth. Sustainability. Visible Mending. Wellness. Vintage Japanese fabrics. 

Sustainability out of necessity. 


Boro, a Japanese word meaning broken. Boro fabric has evolved from Northern Japan farmers created astonishing textiles out of rags using only what they already had. 


In my courses students will review a history of Boro, learn patching, collaging and stitching techniques to mend and repair your own garment or piece of cloth or create something new.


We will discuss trending movements such as visible mending, sustainability and wellness.


Students will have access to my vintage Japanese fabrics.
