MISSA 2022 – Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts
It was so wonderful to be back to MISSA this year! Instead of the workshop being held in Metchosin, the venue was moved to Shawnigan Lake School – another beautiful campus.
I taught a 5-day SAORI Weaving Adventures workshop with 10 enthusiastic people and 2 assistants – Laura Roveda from SAORI Studio LA and Lynn Jones who has been weaving and designing in the SAORI way for 10+ years.
The class was a great mix of people who hadn’t woven before, people who had woven but not tried SAORI weaving and others with some years of SAORI weaving and a whole pile of cloth to design with. In SAORI weaving as “We inspire and learn from each other in the group” this mix was great – and everyone contributed to the overall learning and ideas.
There was weaving, clothing design, a short demo of warping and Bengala Dyeing and much fun. It is always great to see the weavings as they progress from cloth to clothes, bags, wallhangings and more!
These are just a few photos from the week. If you want to see more, please visit my Instagram or Facebook page.
