SAORI Weaving: Weave, Sew & Wear


SAORI is a contemporary, improvisational weaving art from Japan, influenced by Zen principles. Instead of following a predesigned pattern, create your own pattern as you weave. There are no mistakes, just your own unique designs. Start by making a sample or even a scarf. Then set up a warp to weave material for a shrug, vest, tunic or poncho. Make a simple garment using the whole woven material with fringes, using SAORI free-style sewing. Celebrate creative freedom of expression through this moving, meditative craft. Class ends with an informal fashion show to showcase your creations and your process. Limit 8 students
