Saori Weaving (on Oct 8)

One 3-hour class; $30 + tax & supplies

Saori1Saori Weaving

Based on the Japanese tradition of admiring nature’s “beauty with lack of intentions” and adopting it into a variety of art forms, Saori weaving deviates from the traditional desire for regularity and clean lines by celebrating free expression and the irregularities are inherent in hand worked creations.

Come join Susan for an evening of adventure as you expand your weaving horizons and free yourself to experiment with different materials and techniques to create a one of a kind piece of fiber art.  In this single session class, we’ll discuss yarn options and mixtures, warp the loom, start weaving, and discuss yarn and color changes.  You will complete weaving the piece on your own.

Mittens and fingerless gloves are perfect knitting for the approaching holiday season. They are quick to knit. The choice of yarn makes for a distinctive and unique gift – my personal favorite for teachers. Kiko has chosen two Churchmouse designs for this class - Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens and Welted Fingerless Glove. All students will learn to knit in the round on double pointed needles. Those selecting the Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens pattern will learn to follow a color chart.

Pair this class with Hickory’s early October workshop Knitting in (Small) Circles to practice the techniques covered!
