Last week saw the second Saori Kai at the studio.
in Japanese means sharing or a gathering. A Saori Kai is an
opportunity to meet other Saori weavers and share your
Local Saori weavers came and brought their recent weaves, shared ideas, solved some problems and ate some lovely cake.
Here are some of their beautiful weaves, sorry I didn't take so many photos - there was far too many lovely weavings to distract me from photographing :)
Stunning felted handspun looong scarf, wrap, to keep you warm this winter
Beautiful hanging inspired by a Design Seeds image that may be lashed/stretched to hang - look forward to seeing how it evolves.
Next few pieces are inspired by rust, great textures on these - I esecially loved all the hardware that is woven in that gives the pieces a nice weight and sound :)
Lovely idea for christmas presents, these are his and hers scarves - woven on the same warp but with different coloured wefts for his and her.
Handspun wefts from the Isles of Orkney - these skeins are colours from the Island, I think I may need to visit :)
Autmnal weaves with luscious, dyed wensleydale locks.
Thanks all for coming and sharing your weaves and your stories, look forward to seeing more :)
