This workshop is designed for those with some SAORI weaving experience.  In this fun filled 3 hours you delve deeper in to SAORI philosophy, techniques, and design possibilities. Don’t fret! The loom still comes already be warped for you! And yes, it will be perfectly imperfect.  We will cover loads of fun techniques for adding color and texture to your cloth.

Often described as “Painting with Yarn” this free form weaving style was born in Japan in the early 1960s when Misao Jo missed a dent in her reed. As she wove an unintended pattern developed that she found pleasing. Today, SAORI can be found around the world as weavers of all ages and abilities find the joy of weaving from the heart and embracing the perfectly imperfect.
