Discover SAORI! The journey begins!

This workshop is for EVERYONE! Whether you have never woven, are a new weaver, or have been weaving for years SAORI has something to offer you! In this fun filled 3 hours you will learn how the floor loom works and begin your journey of weaving from the heart. Don’t fret! The loom will already be warped for you! During the class time Denise will demonstrate various techniques for color and texture that you may choose to include in your weaving or not. At the end of the class you will be amazed at how different each finished piece is. 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. Children and adults alike love this class, and many take it multiple times as no two are ever exactly the same. Everything you need to weave is provided in this workshop. Some students like to also bring: bits of handspun, novelty yarn, fiber, feathers, jewelry etc. All of this can be incorporated into the weaving. In addition you will receive a personal “treasure basket starter kit”.
