Norfolk Textile Artists Saori workshop

A great Saori weaving workshop with the Norfolk Textile Artists - a really dynamic group with lots of very knowledgabe and talented people. We had a lovely morning trying out freestyle weaving techniques on the Saori looms and on The Saori Sheds' lap looms. We experimented with the FANTASTIC Sakiori cutter - which was a big hit! using old saris and fabric cut into strips and incorporated into the weaving. An inspiring morning thankyou to all :)
