In this video, we’re going to warp a ready-made warp at our loom. I’ll walk you through all the steps of the process using a standard SAORI black cotton warp that’s 150 threads wide and 30 meters long. I tried to cover all of the little points that Kenzo taught me years ago. The process is not hard. And if you pay attention to detail it is virtually painless!

Why a Members Only Area?
During my time in Japan at SAORINOMORI, I’ve had several discussions with Akiko and Kenzo about sharing SAORI techniques over the internet. Their feeling is that the information shared via the internet needs to be done in a way that is respectful to other studios. On the one hand, the internet can be a great platform for sharing information and engaging students. But on the other hand, materials posted by one teacher can keep a student from visiting a studio close to them.
So the compromise has been to put videos and tutorials behind a password-protected wall in a “members only” section of our website. All are welcomed to join, of course! To access our video and PDF tutorials, please log in or sign up below.
how to you make it so when you push the pedals to separate the warp thread it does it every other thread or does it do that by itself do you have to thread the warp threads alternating between an eye from the back row and eye from the front row or how does that work
thank you so so so much for making this video I’m housebound and couldn’t make it to a studio to learn so I want you to know this means a lot to me, I appreciate this and I appreciate your work thank you
When you thread 1 heddle on the back harness and then 1 heddle on the front harness and so on, then connect the peddles to the harnesses when you press the peddles, one half of the threads go up and one half go down (+/-).
Thank you so much for this and for all other tutorials. I’m new to Saori weaving and although I purchased the purple book I don’t know what I would have done without your detailed tutorials. So so grateful 🙏🏼
