SAORI Kai (gathering) at the studio

Nov. 15th (Saturday) 3:30-5:30pm,  Free, however it would be nice if you bring a snack to share.

This time we will have regular “show and tell”. Make sure to bring your new pieces that you have not shown yet. I hope this is a good goal to finish your current projects. Then we will talk about our upcoming group exhibition in July, 2015. We need to form a committee to make this a success.

Also, Mihoko will announce about a study group. This is a new structure beyond classes and SAORI kai. She has waited to the right time to have such a group for a long time. This is for experienced SAORI weavers to work on same assignment and learn from each other. The participants need a commitment to keep challenging themselves to get a deeper level of understanding weaving structure, colors, yarn and yourselves.
