Boro is a traditional Japanese patchwork style used to repair garments and bedding. Small pieces of scrap fabric stitched to cover holes or thinning materials would over time create a beautiful patchwork.
Learn a modern take on this traditional craft. You will have lovely linen materials and cotton embroidery threads to work with as you discover how to piece together and stitch your own creation. Your slow stitched item could be turned into a pouch, journal cover, drawstring bag, or framed to hang! Use what you learn to mend your favourite jeans or much loved shirt and extend the life of your favourite garments.
ABOUT LISA GUY
I have been creating and making with my hands for over 30 years, it is relaxing, satisfying and a source of great joy and constant learning. Craft has mostly been a hobby and creative outlet while I have been married, working and raising a family but now it is my full time passion! Many years of learning through workshops and trying crafts that interested me have led me to know that being creative and expressing that through what I make is what makes me happy. It is wonderful to use natural textiles to make original, one of a kind pieces with my hands. Currently my focus is on Basket Weaving, Loom Weaving and Macrame. I teach workshops in different venues around Brisbane and can also come to your home or a venue where you can have your own workshop with a group of friends. Excitingly, I took part in my first market in November and was thrilled that my pieces were purchased and found a home with people that appreciated and loved them as I did.
