If you want to try something creative and really japaneese, try learning Sashiko with Keiko at Canoha The Shop. And visit her website https://cano-ha.com/en/canoha-eng/, you'll find something that suits you.

I had a great time! Keiko is an amazing teacher. I have a lot of questions and she answered every single one of them in a very detailed manner. I love the class and the location ❤️

This was a lovely experience! She is incredibly patient with first time artisans and very much caters to your interest. I will have a beautiful product and also the skills to make many more 😊

I thoroughly enjoyed Keiko's sashiko workshop, and am so glad to have learnt the foundation skills to continue this craft. Keiko was patient, warm, encouraging, and her instructions were easy to follow. Her studio is in a really lovely neighbourhood in Tokyo, so I recommend exploring it before/after class (Keiko was more than happy to suggest eateries and craft stores for me to visit). Thank you again Keiko :)

I really enjoyed my Sashiki class. It was great to be able to chose my own project and color thread. Keiko taught me some great tricks to make my Sashiki piece more beautiful.

Keiko is sweet and a lovey person, and a patient teacher! The sashiko lesson takes place in her shop, which shows off the charm and her love of handicrafts and beautiful things, and really is a calming space. Keiko helped me get started and guided me to finish two edges of the border before time was up (it passes quickly!) and we had great conversation all the while. Afterwards, Keiko helped me pick some suitable sashiko patterns for me to try when I went home. I look forward to coming back for an advanced workshop when next in Japan!
