Saori Classes

Consistent with Saori philosophy and our vision of offering a destination for creative expression through fiber arts, we recognize that each individual is on their own journey and works at their own pace. As such, we offer open studio time instead of topic-specific classes.

I see my role as your Saori “guide,” offering suggestions, resources, and materials that will enhance your creative experience. Coming to the studio, connecting with weaving friends, and savoring the time you set aside for yourself and your creative explorations may become the high point of your week!

Consistent with Saori philosophy,

each individual is on their own journey.

The studio is a place to become comfortable with the Saori loom, learn weaving techniques, gain inspiration and share ideas, or simply get “into your zone,” independently weaving an on-going piece of unique art. One student may be interested in learning to create their own beautiful warp, while another may be at the sewing machine making a one-of-a-kind garment from their hand-woven cloth.

Works in progress can be detached and re-attached from our Saori looms, and we provide storage space for projects between visits. This flexibility allows for multiple students to use a limited number of looms, working on their projects during their scheduled sessions and storing their work between sessions.

Weaving Free-Style on a Rigid Heddle Loom

Curious about weaving? This 3½-hour class offered one Saturday each month introduces students to the limitless creativity of weaving free-style. Using simple, portable looms that have been pre-warped, we focus on the creative, inspirational aspects of color, texture, and techniques, allowing each student to create their own personal art piece. There are no rules, expectations or mistakes. For many, this is a stepping stone to Saori weaving.

See registration form below for specific dates and times.

Cost: $65, includes all supplies. Since seating is limited, reservations and payment are required in advance, unless other arrangements have been made.
