SAORI Weaving at Galeri, Caernarfon

SAORI weaving
SAORI weaving fun

I am running 2 workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon at Galeri’s new SafleCREU.

This is a wonderful opportunity to have a go at weaving on a SAORI loom. They are simple to use and are set up ready for you to choose your colour and texture and play! There are no rules, no mistakes. It is rewarding and fun.

All materials are provided and you will take your weaving home with you.

To book your place follow the link above. There is a maximum of 6 people per workshop so early booking is recommended. You can book online, by telephone at Galeri or at the reception/box office.
