Meet Emily … coming from the snowy mountains across the country to come for a infusion of Saori. she has woven traditionally for years, but saw a magazine in the news stand which featured my "Art of the Vintner jacket" blog post here last year in Belle Armoire Magazine and decided it was time to have more fun weaving, and use her design and sewing skills too so !
a happy warp!
How much fabric will be needed for a piece ? I helped her determine that before we learn to wind a unique saori warp 5 threads at a time….
Day two ...was a full studio time with 3 other students arriving Donna and Antoinette and Jenifer
saori cross holders in place of lease sticks.
threading away from the loom saori cross holder
The end of a fruitful fun second day a new 8 yard warp wound , threaded and almost all beamed on!
with traditional looms and warping boards (NOT Saori equipment) ,this would have been two or three day process or more instead of one day.... saori santa cruz classes
stay tuned for day 3 and 4…..
Peaceful weaving in the redwoods
