Kogin embroidery is a type of Sashiko, originating in the Northern part of Japan, in Aomori prefecture and is a type of counted thread work. It is stitched on
The name “Kogin” derives from the Japanese word “koginu”, “ko” being “small” and ginu meaning “wear”, the name of a long Japanese jacket, which was often decorated with this technique.
In this class you will learn:
• How to form the three basic length stitches and count threads
• Where to start and how to neatly tidy your starting and ending threads on the back of your piece
• The rights and wrongs turning corners, crossing lines and intersections
• Starting with a number of small patterns to get used to the stitching you will then work on a larger, more involved pattern using a template provided
• Information will be provided about how to make your own designs
The tutor will bring examples of their work as well as a number of reference books should anyone wish to continue their practice at home.
