A SAORI Kai – in Berkeley

When we were down in California in October – Lynn Harris set up a SAORI Kai at her studio – SAORI Berkeley. It was so great to meet some of the SAORI weavers from her studio and be inspired by each other.

One of the many great things about a SAORI kai is that you can see and feel the pieces, examine them to see how they are constructed. Photos are great, but being able to see the details in person is so much more interesting…

You can see more photos of this weaving on her Facebook page – and why not Like her page while you’re there to see more SAORI 🙂

Thank you so much Lynn for including us in your SAORI Kai and being such a wonderful host! Sorry I didn’t get photos of all the weavings and people…

Happy Weaving,
Terri

      Thanks Noreen! It was so much fun to go to a SAORI Kai at another studio, meet new people and see new ideas! Being able to see and touch the fabrics, see other clothes on people and have them tell the stories behind the cloth is so wonderful 🙂

      Happy Weaving,
      Terri
