Its hard to condense information to work out just what you are thinking….
I spent a wonderful week away, with all sorts of different people. I’ve come home to so many thoughts spinning around in my head it is hard to make it stop.
First up, I was able to catch up with a wonderful Weaverwho so very kindly and so very cruely let me use her Saori loom and got to look at this wonderful weaving in the above photo.
This loom is a basic 2 shaft loom but thats where the ‘basic’ part ends. This loom is pure Japanese wonderment (its a word you know) – simplistic in design, easy to use, amazing features…sigh. And a price tag that requires me to save.
But until I get my hands on one, and I plan to in the next year, I will have to daydream.
Here are a few examples of other wonderful Saori weavers.
What is Saori weaving exactly? Well the thought is to weave without constraints, without pressure for perfection, and to just enjoy the process. I think sounds just like my weaving to a tee. (And it was featured in the wonderful Entangled Magazine).
