“Recycling BORO Style” Workshop with Pamela Woodward
July 8 and 9: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Colour Vie Studio
222 Symington Avenue, Toronto
Boro is the Japanese technique of patching and mending the utilitarian
textiles of everyday lives, resulting in beautiful compositions of hue and simple
hand stitching. Since recycling is a prominent concern in our minds today,
this class will incorporate attitudes and techniques of boro to refurbish
worn clothing and other textiles, and to work on quilt like assemblages.
Whether working individually or on a collective piece, participants are
welcome to submit their work to the festival exhibition at Propeller Gallery.

Upon registration a list of materials will be emailed to you.
