Nuitsugi Workshop at IFAM in Santa Fe

Through this “Nuitsugi” class, you will explore various mending techniques in the kimono-making process with Maki Aizawa. The sewing techniques are very functional and practical, yet by using the techniques of kimono making, they can be applied to delicate fabrics such as silk, fine thin cotton, and linen. Bring an item of clothing or a cotton tote bag to practice these techniques on. “Nui” means to sew, and “tsugi” means to connect. Let’s create something beautiful together!
