9:00 am -1:30 pm (30 minute break for lunch)


In this four-hour workshop, you have the opportunity to make one unique small pouch using various Japanese Boro scraps and Sashiko thread. This is the first time for Akiko to offer the unique "Chiku Chiku" workshop in the United States. Her works have appeared in many venues throughout Japan since 2006. In addition, she has been invited to hold workshops and exhibits in Nantou, France (2014) and Brisbane and Adelaide, Australia (2015). Since 2015, an Australian group of Chiku Chiku stitchers make their pilgrimage to Niigata, Japan, on a regular basis where Akiko holds workshops.
