SAORI Weaving: Weaving without Boundaries

June 23, 2018 - June 24


SAORI Weaving: Weaving without Boundaries

In this 2-day workshop students will be introduced to the SAORI Philosophy of Weaving where there are no rules and no mistakes:

  1. Consider the differences between machines and people
  2. Let’s adventure beyond our imagination
  3. Let’s look out through eyes that shine
  4. Let’s learn from each other in the group

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

SAORI looms ready to weave on will be provided and we will explore creativity, colour, texture and interesting freestyle techniques.  During the 2 days, students will be able to complete a weaving while learning about the philosophy of SAORI.  Students will have use of looms; weaving materials will be provided.
