Kogin is one of the greatest Japanese traditional embroidery techniques, which originated over 200 years ago in Tsugaru, Aomori (Northern Japan). This technique is now very popular with existing sewing enthusiasts who are attracted to its beautiful and unique stitching patterns in colourful materials.

In this advanced live online class, we will be using bigger fabric and more complex patterns to make items such as coasters, pot mats or a tapestry. It will take a longer time and is harder to achieve, so your teacher will be there to support you every step of the way!

All the materials are imported from Japan so you will get to enjoy an authentic and high-quality experience. Enjoy a friendly and relaxed setting and leave the session with new skills, knowledge and all your beautiful creations.

Here are your choices to make with the materials in the craft box (you will need to specify your choice at check out):
- Four coasters set (4 of 10x10cm Kogin fabrics, thread, calico cut cloth), or
- Two pot mat set (2 of 20x20cm Kogin fabrics, thread, calico cut cloth), or
- Small Tapestry (1 of 40cm x 40cm Kogin fabrics, thread, tapestry tool)

I am from Tsugaru, Aomori, Japan, exactly where Kogin was born and I started learing Kogin when I was a child. So I grew up with many of the traditional art & crafts and those techniques in Aomori naturally. I have been building my skills and knowledge for more than 20 years and have helped sewers, to introduce the traditions overseas and want to connect with you for fun.

Nowadays there are so many new styles of embroidery patterns but used the original Kogin techniques are still being created by needlework lovers in Japan. Its design and texture are well cared for, beautiful, cute, warm, stylish, and modern…You will find your favourite one from same samples.
I would love to share my Kogin knowledge with all the needlework lovers!
