Learn to weave freestyle on a SAORI loom. Honor your own inner sense of beauty and truth as you play with color, texture, and technique, and come away with a unique piece of woven art that reflects your heart.

Free weaving is about expressing yourself. There are no rules about what you must do or how you have to do it, or what materials you can or can’t use, or what size your work has to be.

“Cloth” can include yarn, fabric, paper, plastic, metal, beads, found objects…if you can touch it, you can weave with it.

Finished cloth can be made into wall hangings, clothing, useful items, decorations…it’s up to you.

What is freeweaving? Basically, it’s weaving what you feel. There are no rules, no “must-dos”.

No experience necessary; all materials and tools provided. Just bring your willingness to experiment and explore!
