Study Group A
1 in stock
It is a 6-month program to deepen your knowledge of weaving techniques and develop your inner creativity by working on a specific assignment and share the work in a monthly meeting on zoom in a group. This is for people who has a loom at home, has a basic skill of warping and weaving, and has been weaving for a while. This program is not for a beginner weaver.
Mihoko has been facilitating the Study Group for several years. She has worked on the same assignment with participants as well and she will continue that.
Assignments choices are like “two color interlocking”, “weave with one color”, or “Bold tapestry”.
Most participants reflected that the Study Group was a great program because they learned so much by seeing the variety of interpretation of the same technique. Many of them keep returning to the program to get new ideas that they have not come up if they have not shared in this way and to develop their interests, knowledges, and skills. It is educational, encouraging, inspiring, and fun to challenge something new and something you are not so interested in before. The assignment is not limited your creativity.
This is perfect for people who want to have a guidance for new learning, who want to have a challenge, who want to connect and build friendship with other weavers, who want to develop their skills and knowledge about SAORI weaving, or/and who want to deepen their inner creativity.
