Introduction to Cyanotype & Sashiko Workshop July 28th, 2019 at Indigo Stitch

Introduction to Cyanotype & Sashiko Workshop
This workshop is guaranteed fun and easy! Discover how to combine sashiko, sun prints to make your own one-of-a-kind innovative quilt.

Sun printing is produced on a special cyanotype cotton fabric that gives white and blue images on a deeper indigo background. The process is very simple: images such as leaves or grasses, paper silhouettes or designs drawn on transparencies are placed over dry cyanotype fabric, exposed to the sun or a UV lamp for 5-10 minutes, then rinsed and dried. The fabric is then ready to use as a quilt block.

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embellishment using a running stitch of heavy white cotton on indigo fabric and combines beautifully with cyanotype. We will cover sashiko techniques, how to easily transfer designs onto dark fabric, the best fabric and thread options
for Sashiko, techniques for perfect stitch length, curves and corners. Explore how to translate photos and drawings into effective sashiko designs and how to combine them with your cyanotype blocks.
