Event description

Description

Saori is a hand weaving style and philosophy emanating from Japan. This fresh and freeing approach to weaving on a loom emphasizes creativity and free expression. No rules, no fear – just pure absorption and immersion into weaving and working with luscious yarn and threads.

Tutor

This workshop is held at Curiousweaver Studio, Old Bar, NSW - a fully registered Saori handweaving studio in Australia. The tutor is handweaver and studio owner Karen (Kaz) Madigan. Kaz has been weaving and writing about weaving for nearly 40 years. She welcomes all to her studio to learn about this most historic and contemporary craft. For more information see Curiousweaver Studio site.

The Studio

The atmosphere is casual and relaxed to allow more freedom in woven expression. The workshops are limited to 5 participants and absolutely no experience is needed to weave. During the workshop you will have your own loom to weave on which is fully set up ready to go. You will learn a range of expressive weave techniques which can be incorporated easily and immediately into your own unique textile design. You will have access to a full weaving studio and tools.

Experience

Absolutely no experience is required.

Everything is supplied

Workshop is from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm each day and a group dinner is organised in Old Bar on the Saturday night. Cost covers both days tuition, loom set up and equipment use. Materials are extra at .19c per gram on weight woven. This depends on what and how you weave. Generally $10.00 – $50.00. Yarns provided are high quality weaving yarns especially for weaving cloth. Snacks and refreshments are served through the day. You will need to provide or be prepared to buy your lunch.

What you will make

In the two days you will be weaving to your own human rhythm and style. Weaving on floor looms is quick and you may create one or two scarf lengths. These can also be art weaves for interiors, interior textiles, bags or simple clothing. The Saori weaving approach specialises in creating clothing from the woven cloth.

Come to Old Bar Beach on the NSW Mid North Coast

Old Bar beach
