Yesterday I attended a Saori method weaving workshop. I didn't know what to expect--I had tried to take a weaving class before, but found myself lost and eventually disinterested with so many steps in setting up the loom (ADD). With this class, the loom was already threaded with the warp...so all I had to do was...weave! It was incredibly fun. Fumi, the instructor, took the photos of me weaving and wearing the finished piece...it's a bit short for a scarf, but it is currently functioning as a nice wall hanging in my living room.
I am intrigued by the possibilities.
A Saori loom and lessons have shot up to items 1 & 2 on my birthday wishlist!
Thank-you Fumi-san and TGS for a lovely, relaxing afternoon.
