SAORI Weaving Adventures

SAORI Weaving Adventures

In this workshop the students will be introduced to 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 group

This beautiful philosophy from Japan opens new ways of exploring weaving, whether you have never woven before or have been weaving for many years.

SAORI looms will be provided and we will start with weaving and the exploration of colour and texture – like painting with yarn. During the workshop the students will be able to complete at least two weavings. We will also look at things like 3-dimensional woven creations, one-of-a-kind wearable art and clothing design.

As there are ‘no rules and no mistakes’ in this style of weaving, the possibilities of what we will do in the 5 days is endless. Each student will be encouraged to explore things that are of interest to them in this expressive style of weaving.

NOTE: If you have your own loom to bring to class, please contact the MISSA office.
