AiR – weaving, exploring and the flute…

Day 23 – and three people new to SAORI weaving came to the studio to explore.

I always love to see how people approach the weaving, the materials they choose, and what they weave. In this case they all started with a black warp and chose yarn from the shelves and fibre from the baskets of treasure – and each result is totally different.
“Weave Thyself” – the SAORI way…

Seth and Beth are local Salt Springers who brought a visiting friend along to weave. Thanks for sharing the afternoon at the studio!

Day 24 – a catch-up day – groceries, hair cut, bank, and other errands including the
Post Office – where I picked up a box from SAORI no Mori!!! Always like Christmas 🙂

Day 25 – another visitor to the studio for a morning of weaving and exploration. A traditional weaver who wasn’t sure about SAORI, but decided to come and see what it was all about. By the time she left she was full of ideas of how to incorporate many of her fibres at home into her weaving!

Since it was Saturday, it was another visit to the Salt Spring Market for me! Another aeropress coffee at Mt. Maxwell Coffee, some fresh spinach for my dinner and visiting with people that I know.

I also stopped in at the new Pod Gallery – wonderful! and at the Salt Spring Gallery of Fine Art – an artist run co-op where I saw a new show “Imaginarium” that opened the previous night. This all part of my AiR in looking at other works of art, different subjects and approaches to art. Inspiring!

Day 26 – Well today was a long awaited day – as I had my first flute lesson on a Native American Flute. I had received one as a gift for Christmas in 2011 and so have waited until I could finally take this class. The flute is made by Rommey at Heart Song Flutes. Mine is made of yellow cedar and is in the key of “G”.

I enjoyed the afternoon learning from Ed Peekeekoot. I learned a lot – but don’t be expecting a concert or even a song anytime soon!

Today it’s back to the studio with another visitor to the island who wants to try out SAORI weaving – planting SAORI seeds!

Happy Weaving,
Terri

    So great to see the happiness in each face. You inspire me and so many others to explore Saori weaving. Thank you for sharing these images of AiR participants and their weavings. My own fingers are itching to get on the loom now!
