Boro Bag with Liz Gemmel

Time  10am - 4.30pm

 Boro is a Japanese traditional form of mending garments. Fabric was a precious commodity in Japan and mending and patching  garments was a necessity but now Boro has become a fashion statement plus a recycler’s dream. Boro means tattered, torn, threadbare and simple stitching was used to patch essential garments and the cloths of domestic life.

We will use this method to make a piece of art fabric from our collective patches. The bag is a simple rectangle folded and stitched to turn it into a shoulder bag. The sewing stitches will be the basic running stitch which is used both for sewing the patches together and for decorative embellishment.
