Kimono House teaches a range of stitches and craft workshops to inspire your creative interest.  All of our workshops are cancelled until further notice due to the current coronavirus situation.  We will return with our regular program as soon as it is safe to do so.

We offer classes in sashiko, boro and other traditional Japanese crafts including temari and shibori.  Workshops can also be arranged for groups at your own venue.  To book into one of our classes please choose from our current program.  Due to the current coronavirus situation we are taking expressions of interest that can be accessed via our booking sheets.
