SAORI Study Group

SAORI Study Group


We share new ideas with everyone in the group without hiding them. Each one of us inspires the other by sharing his or her new attempt. This way, we support each other in practicing the philosophy of SAORI Weaving. If you weave alone, it can be difficult for you to maintain the courage to break with convention. —Kenzo Jo

SAORI Sojourners is a monthly study group that meets to discuss and learn from each other! Meetings may include readings, slideshows, demonstrations, etc. Group members will have an opportunity to share their discoveries.

The group will choose the topics to be explored. Here are some ideas to get us started:

  • playing with weft

  • playing with warp

  • weaving with recycled materials

  • weaving with a color outside your comfort zone

  • weaving with items found at the _____ store (hardware, thrift, dollar, etc.)

  • weaving a specific technique

  • weaving with only _____ color/s (one, opposite, analogous, etc.)

  • loose weaving

  • shaped weaving

  • weaving windows

  • the topics are limitless!

Students can reserve Studio time or weave at home to explore the monthly topic; then bring their work to following month’s meeting.

The first meeting in April will be a planning meeting to decide what we want to study/focus on each month for six months (May-October).

Meetings will be on Thursdays, April 18; May 16; June 20; July 18; August 15; September 19; October 17.
