SAORImôr Studio

My studio has an inviting, creative atmosphere full of light and colour. I have 6 SAORI looms set up ready for you to weave. No previous experience is necessary. Come whenever it suits you, meet other people, share your ideas and learn from each other. All ages and abilities welcome.

As well as regular classes (details below) I also run one off workshops that cover different aspects of Saori: see upcoming workshops.
