About the Event

FREE | ALL AGES* | NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED

Join us in a new series of sewing workshops this May. Our theme for this month is “Roots”, which encourages us to reflect on our profound connection with diverse origins that shape our identities. Our Lead Artist, Takako Segawa, envisions a metaphorical “tree” which draws strength and substance from its roots, so too can we find resilience and depth by nourishing the essence of who we are.

Sewing Facilitator, Anita Boey, has designed a Kimono-style cardigan, featuring a statement patchwork collar, to tell the story of our varied life experiences that makes us who we are as individuals. Each of us has an intricate tapestry that is unique, and we can proudly wear this on our collars! Join in to create your own customized Kimono-style cardigan. Jamii will provide a selection of fabric for you to choose from, and we also welcome you to bring fabric that means something special to you.

For novice sewers, Shaimaa Yacout, our dedicated Sewing Workshop Assistant, will guide you with the fundamental skills of operating a sewing machine and through the month, you will create your first sewing project!

Let's stitch away our Sundays together in a warm and encouraging atmosphere. By the end of this workshop series, you'll not only have a garment to treasure but also the pride of mastering new sewing skills!

Participants are registering for one-month only, and required to attend all 4 sessions.

LESSON PLAN FOR THIS CLASS:

May 19 – Sewing the collar to the bodice of the Kimono.

*Under 12 need to accompanied by an adult.
