SAORI Weaving Retreat

This past week has been busy in the studio. Susan was here for a weaving retreat, Jen and her family for a warping workshop, Tara to work on her commission piece and another visitor to the studio as well.

Susan spent the week “Exploring with all her might”, trying new things and looking out through eyes that shine.

Weaving loosely, mountains, clasped weft and more…

Inlay and colour explorations…

After the warping workshop we had a red warp on the loom and so Susan made a ‘mini Peace Banner’ full of fun and experimentation with all different fibres…

She didn’t think that she would ever make clothing with her weaving, but left thinking about her own line of SAORI clothes, plus some beautiful cloth for a first top…

It was fun to get to know Susan and spend time in the SAORI Studio with her…

Until next time….

    Absolutely amazing, amazing work. Love it — love how the pieces stretch the boundaries (which I suppose is the point of Saori — no boundaries!)
    I’m very much hoping to be able to come for a retreat myself next year — always inspired by your posts and the work of other weavers.

      A week immersed in SAORI is a chance for lots of exploration for sure! I would LOVE it if you come for another retreat – that would be great.

      Happy Weaving,
      Terri
