One of the principles of Saori weaving is " Inspire one another and everyone in the group".Through daily/weekly/ monthly /yearly virtual sharing in my "weaving in the Saori way " group Ravelry saori way group here many Saori weavers world wide converse, ask questions, post photos of their weavings and share. In my Saori studio Saori Santa Cruz, students convene regularly several times a year for an informal sharing or class and we call that sharing a Kai.
Saturday August 9th I will be hosting a Saori kai at a local gallery. A fiber show will be featured for the month of August, with 12 local fiber artists ( see press release below). Everyone will be welcome to attend the saori Ka. Please bring your current or past weavings to share. We will be discussing Saori and you are welcome to bring your saori looms and a chair to spend a few hours in the Michaelango Gallery class room located off the gallery, weaving. I will be showing a few techniques. It is not necessary to bring your looms, but you are welcome too, but please bring your woven pieces to share, a chair and a little someithing to share food wise.We can stay till 4 pm. Do not weave? Please come and bring a chair and some food to share and find out about what Saori weaving is. (non weavers are welcome too.)
I will have a couple of looms in case any one wants to try weaving. You can bring your spinning fiber, drop spindles, and or wheel as well. There is no charge .I will be discussing, and demonstrating some new techniques among other things, hand spun yarns and inserting additions that we can use in the wefts of our Saori weaving.
