Sat, Jun 17, 11am-4pm Saori and Freestyle Weaving
Enjoy the ease and comfort of weaving Saori-style! This “no rules” style of weaving allows for designing in the reed, meaning you will create without a plan and design as you go – freestyle! Focus on color, texture, spontaneity and experimentation, resulting in a completely unique scarf, wall hanging, or table runner. Techniques will include: looping, alternative selvages, double and triple interlocking weft, floats, inlay, knots, inserts, slit and windows.
Prerequisites (weaving experience): Ability to warp your own loom independently, unless renting a pre-warped loom from the instructor. Bring your own warped loom. Any type of loom will be welcome. Or, rent a Saori loom for $25 (a limited number of studio looms will be available). To add loom rental, go to the loom rental image at the bottom of this page and click “Add to cart”.
Please bring scissors, tapestry needle, and your warped loom with plenty of weft yarns and fibers for your project. A sharing basket will be provided for sharing bits and pieces of “treasures” if you would like to contribute some interesting bits of special yarns for pops of color along the way. An assortment of additional weft materials will be available for sale.
Bring your lunch, beverages will be provided. The cost of this class is $125 per person.
