Boro –   or Ranru らんる workshop with KOBO A-B. ‘Boroboro‘ translates as old and tattered and is the mostly commonly used term when referring to the Japanese textiles practice of patching or repairing garments using fragments or scraps of cloth.

The workshops begins with an introduction to BORO, looking at pieces from the KOBO A-B, BORO collection, we will then introduce you to and teach you the basics of Sashiko stitching and the patching/construction process of creating a BORO inspired piece (Artefact).

How to use mending stitches.

The application of repair and mending techniques, using scraps of both modern and vintage Japanese fabric.

The use of visible repair stitch techniques to enhance and to strengthen textiles.
