Fiona Kilburn reviewed: SAORI freeform weaving 2 day beginners' course

"I attended the 2 Day Beginners Saori Weaving course with Amanda and had a wonderful time. I had done a little bit of weaving before but was new to Saori. Right from the beginning Amanda made me feel relaxed and excited to learn. Her teaching style is relaxed and knowledgable. She had lots of examples for inspiration. She provided all the equipment needed which was all a high standard and a lovely selection of yards and treasures to experiment with. It was lovely to spend this time with like-minded people where the emphasis was on creating from the heart rather than the head. There are a few guidelines but no rules to Saori weaving so when we asked, is this right? Amanda would guide us to give it a try and see what happened and we were rewarded with producing individual and interesting art. I am now totally hooked on Saori weaving and have already booked another session with Amanda. I wholly recommend Amanda and this course if you want to give Saori weaving a go."

Clare reviewed: SAORI creative weaving day

"My time with Amanda and our wonderful group of weavers was the perfect day. A beautiful day in the countryside with lovely people, creating straight from the heart. The day flowed effortlessly and Amanda was always on hand to offer advice, history and other titbits of knowledge about the world of Saori. The spirit of Saori was in every aspect of our day together. Encouragement, peace, tranquillity and unbridled creativity. I thank Amanda from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to an art that I can be proud of. I hope I can come back again soon!"

BEAUTIFULcloth SAORI Studio responded:

" Thank you Clare. I am so happy that you enjoyed your day and fully embraced the 4 principles of SAORI weaving. It was a pleasure to share the joy of SAORI with you and I hope to weave with you again!"
