Saori Weaving Workshop for Everyone with Mihoko Wa...

Presented by Falmouth Art Center at Falmouth Art Center

This workshop is for everyone,  age 7 to adult– small children should be accompanied by an adult attendant.
Maximum 10 people.

SAORI Weaving is a contemporary improvisational weaving from Japan. It is an expressive art that everyone can do. No experience necessary–There are no mistakes!

Using a two pedals floor loom with pre-set warp, you will learn how to weave weft with a shuttle to make a scarf length of fabric. You may weave yarn, fabric strips, fleece, ribbons, feathers and more. Just like painting, you can play with fiber and other find objects to make one-of-a- kind of art that only you create at the moment. You will create a wearable, a decorative art or material for sewing.

A short lecture and demo on SAORI weaving is scheduled before the workshop.   Sign up for the lecture here:
