SAORI: Weaving without Boundaries
With Terri Bibby
June 11 - 16, 2023
Terri flawlessly combined the techniques of Saori with the philosophy. I didn’t want the week to end – Past Participant
Explore the beautiful SAORI weaving philosophy from Japan where there are no rules and no mistakes. This philosophy encourages you to “look out through eyes that shine” and see beauty in new ways. It places more importance on free expression and creativity than on technical skills or the regularity of the woven cloth.

Immerse yourself in colour and texture while creating your own unique weavings!
