Bring your own loom and your woven pieces, especially clothing. We aim to have an informal ‘fashion show’ which just means trying on garments and having a lot of fun!

SAORI : SILK Spinning and Weaving Retreat
Unsure about spinning silk? On this retreat you will sample its many forms from the shorter textured noils to the long and lustrous fibres in a silk brick. What are caps and hankies? What is throwsters waste? Master the art of the different methods of spinning all of these.
Weave on soft, matt black cotton warps to make your spun silk ‘pop’. Use supplementary warps, clasped weft, inlay and more.
