Virtual SAORI Kai II – A First Tapestry

Gabriella wrote to me recently saying:

I’m sending you a photo of my first project as promised – I’m already almost done the second one and just loving it.

I asked her if she’d like to be part of the SAORI Kai with her first piece and she agreed. I think that you’ll agree that this is an amazing weaving!

SAORI Weaving

She wrote about her experience:

I came to stay for two nights at Honeysuckle Cottage. During my stay I did a bit of exploring and came across Terri’s studio & then ran into Terri who sat me down at a loom. That was the first time I’d ever tried weaving. I had a sense then that this wouldn’t be the last time and, sure enough, I had the opportunity to return later in the year, to spend more time learning how to weave. I said to friends, “this will either confirm that I want to do this or it’ll get it out of my system.” Two months later my Saori loom was delivered to my house and within a few days I’d completed my first tapestry. I’m working on my third tapestry now and looking forward to seeing where my weaving explorations are going to take me!

I love the beads, the curving lines, the colours!

    Gabriella, this is just stunning! It has so much depth and movement to it. I can’t wait to see your other tapestries and whatever else SAORI inspires you to weave. Thank you for sharing your first weaving with us!
