We at Watiets treated ourselves to a day of inspiration and traditional needlework.
Maaike from Textielfabrique hosted a wonderful Sashiko workshop in her beautiful workspace in Rotterdam.
So we learned all about traditional fabric repairing (Sashiko), how to stitch and how to decorate.
Very useful (having 3 boys means mending lots of knees in jeans, great practice!) and very pretty and inspiring.
We also learned a lot about Indigo, did you know the dye does not infiltrate the thread but adds a layer to it and therefore strengthening the fabric?
We had such a great afternoon, working with hands instead of Mac is a great way to recharge our Watiets energy.
We are already thinking of which workshop to do next!
