About Denise Prince
Denise Prince, along with her husband Hanley, finds joy in being a maker. She opened HanDen Studios SAORI Weaving in 2012, after her lifelong interest in fiber arts took her on a journey that led her to the Japanese art of SAORI weaving. The unique freeform style of weaving drew Denise in, and she knew she had found her new calling.
Denise has studied in Japan with Kenzo Jo and his teachers at SAORINOMORI, the Japanese studio that is the official global home of SAORI weaving. She has passed the3rd grade, 2nd grade, and A-grade tests from the SAORI Hand Weaving Skills Testing Association. She is currently working toward level-1 certification.
In addition to SAORI weaving, Denise also enjoys sewing, spinning and dyeing yarn, and is an award-winning custom jewelry designer.
