  • Fun Fiber for Kids on Feb. 16th-20th, 2015

    This is a new program for kids. I don't set up a kids' class or a beginners class for regular class setting, however, I thought it would be great for kids to come to make something related with SAORI Weaving during a winter break.

    I didn't make it as a camp program so people don't have to make a big commitment. Each workshop is three hours and has a specific goal. No-sew- hat is a easy enough for kids to make their own hat in a workshop. T-shirt design can be a great fun for little kids to draw something they love. I mean kids is 6-18!

    Please spread words and sign up one or two workshop. Please check the details including cancellation policy at the event page. Hope to see you at the studio.
