SAORI: The Joy of Weaving

SAORI: The Joy of Weaving

This is a 7-day workshop. All workshops run 9 – 4 pm daily with lunch provided from 12 – 1pm.

The beautiful SAORI philosophy from Japan opens new ways of exploring weaving, whether you have never woven before or have previous weaving experience. This year, we will have seven days to explore SAORI Weaving and design.

SAORI encourages you to “look out through eyes that shine” and see beauty in new ways.  It places more importance on free expression and creativity than on technical skills or the regularity of the woven cloth.

SAORI looms will be provided and we will start with exploring with colour and texture.

You will be immersed in the SAORI Philosophy of Weaving:

  1. Consider the differences between machines and people
  2. Be bold and adventurous
  3. Look out through eyes that shine
  4. Inspire one another and everyone in the community

As there are ‘no rules and no mistakes’ in this style of weaving, the possibilities of what we will do in the seven days is endless. Each student will be encouraged to explore things that are of interest to them in this expressive style of weaving.

Please note that the material fee includes the use of a pre-warped loom, additional weaving materials and a package of bobbins.
