Take your first SAORI weaving class! In the SAORI Intro Class, you will learn the basics and rhythm of the loom. With gentle guidance, you will be encouraged try new things, make your own discoveries, and develop your individual creativity.

A loom will be prepared with black warp thread for you to begin weaving. You can take your weaving home to show your family and friends!

The easiest way to craft your hand-woven fabric into a work of art is to avoid uniformity. Get rid of stereotypical images of machine-woven fabrics in your mind and start from scratch.
