Saori weaving

saoriclassSpent a lovely morning at Laura Roveda’s Saori Studio LA  where I got to try out this lovely saori loom. I had a feeling that I was going to really like it and I did. Sadly, it’s out of my budget at the moment, but definitely something to save up for.

SAORI WX-60 Loom

I can easily do free weaving on this and being an abstract painter, this is right up my alley . I plan on producing pieces for bags, pillows and whatever else I can come up with for my Etsy store. Here are a couple of things I made already using my rigid heddle loom. The top two pieces are linen with handwoven wool insets. The bottom piece is linen with felting and sashiko stitching. The yellow cross body bag has grey linen on the backside and the closure and strap are still to be added.

I really need to finish up some of these half finished projects and photograph them, so I can put them in my store. Slow going, but having so much fun!
