Saori Handweaving Workshop vol.4

Here is the third handweaving workshop by Fumie Omiya.

The “sa-” in “saori” is a Zen Buddhist term that means “each thing has
its own unique quality” and the “-ori” means “weaving.”  Thus saori  is
more than just a technique, it is the philosophy that each person has a
latent intuitive, creative power and the aesthetic that embraces the
natural beauty of unintended “mistakes” and encourages exploring the
unknown.  It is an artistic yet practical path of meditation, stress
reduction, and identity-building.

This pre-set workshop will teach how to weave a scarf-length
piece, which can be used as a scarf, jewelry hanger, art piece, table
runner, or any other ideas you can come up with! Instructor Fumie
Omiya, who has been working with a saori loom for over

twenty years, will provide ALL materials including a plethora of yarns and threads.

The below images show the artworks which were created by people who took the workshop last time! (updated May.21.2010)
