About the Course

A SAORI course is easy and fun. The looms are set up and ready for you to weave. Simply choose your colour and texture from the rainbow colour wall, sit at the loom and begin. No rules, no mistakes, just joy!

My studio has an inviting, creative atmosphere full of light and colour. I have a variety of SAORI looms set up ready for you to weave. No previous experience is necessary. Come whenever it suits you, meet other people, share your ideas and learn from each other. All ages and abilities welcome.

Immerse yourself in the SAORI experience and weave freely in your own way using your full creative capacity. Become familiar with the SAORI looms & weaving techniques to achieve exciting results with colour and texture. Understand what is meant by Misao Jo’s message.

SAORImôr is one of only 5 registered SAORI studios in the UK and the only one in Wales. As this is a Japanese based craft I like to express the connection between the mountains and sea of North Wales and the mountains and sea of Japan, and to look at Japanese culture and practice.

I offer this very special opportunity to do this unique craft in one of the most stunning areas of the UK.

My name is Rosie Green. I trained in woven textiles a long time ago and have years of experience in selling and exhibiting my own pieces and in teaching handloom weaving. Running my SAORI studio allows me the opportunity to follow my passion and pass it on to others, helping them to explore their own creativity in a caring and supportive environment.
