Tara’s Saori Designs

Tara has been coming to weave at my studio and work on clothing design. She does most of her weaving at home on her Saori loom and is now very inspired to make clothing, scarves, wall hangings, table runners, etc. as she is going to be at a market this summer to sell her weavings.

This week she brought a huge basket of cloth that she had woven and we sat down to decide what to make. We worked on two wall hangings, a few scarves and then a vest / top that she wanted to make. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I did get a few of the finished top.

    Hi Friends,
    Tara and I want to thank Terri for being such a gifted
    and patient teacher. Soari weaving is truly liberating. The
    inclusive/accepting attitude encourages creativity and
    diversity. What an open-hearted community!
    Woven Hugs to you all, Eve and Tara
    P.S.Thanks for your loving comment Noreen…

    The ‘expressing’ that comes through Saori weaving delights me in my own experience of it and comes across so heartfully in Tara’s vest. I like the cascade of fleece closures gathering together, so to speak, the collection and selection of the weaving itself. And, as always, I feel artist and viewer benefit when the creation is wearable and strolls out in the world.

    You are truly gifted dearest Tara. I love to see your creativity manifest itself and when it is a labour of love, it makes it even more special.
