Summer is in the air and we have so many exciting events and projects coming up in the next few months. However, the regular class schedule will not change. School is ending, the birds are chirping, and us weavers keep on weaving. Here's a summary of what's new for SAORI Worcester.
The International SAORI Conference (http://saori-canada-us.weebly.com/conference) is being held July 11-16 in Peachtree City, Georgia. Teachers and students from the US, Canada and Japan are gathering to share skills, swap ideas, and build community. Fashion shows, show-and tells (SAORI-Kai), and workshops are all on the agenda.
I am spending a week at the Searsport Shores Ocean Campground (http://www.campocean.com/Art_Classes) in Searsport, Maine as an Artist in Residence from August 10-16. I will be joined by my mother from Yokohama, Japan, who will be presenting on Sado, the Japanese Art of Tea Preparation. She will be in Worcester for most of August, so classes may include a cup of authentic Matcha tea.
