Boro - The Art of Japanese Patchwork with Phil Thomas
Create something intricate and beautiful using the Japanese Patchwork method known as Boro (meaning tatters or patchwork). Textile artist Phil Thomas will show you how to stitch a modern-day version of boro fabric using scraps and hand stitchery, which will then be used to create a small bag. Once learned, the technique can be used in many other sewing projects at home.
No previous patchwork skills are necessary
