Sakiori Weaving is an ancient Japanese method of taking worn out clothing and repurposing it into new fabric for scarves, totes, shoes, kimonos, etc. The old clothing is torn into strips that are then woven tightly in a “rag rug” technique. In this class, we will be using silk or cotton strips to weave a scarf. This can be done on a simple rigid heddle loom or a 4 harness table or floor loom. You will work on your own loom and create your own piece of art!
This is a great workshop for anyone concerned about the complexities of a workshop, as well as experienced weavers who want to relax and try something different and fun.
Sign up quickly so we know how many to plan for.
