The saori shed

saori shed materials

Specialising in creative knitwear, Saori weaving and unique handspun yarns made from wool, natural, local fibres, and recycled materials

Individual knitted garments, clothes & accessories created to be worn in many ways, wonderful fibres and one-off yarns.

Saori weaving originates in Japan.

The 'sa' of Saori comes from the Zen vocabulary meaning everything has its own individual dignity, the 'ori' means weaving. It is freestyle hand weaving without rules and restrictions. It is open to everyone regardless of age, gender, physical ability or intellectual aptitude.

Be bold and adventurous!

Saori weaving is accessable to everyone. In a Saori Studio the looms are set up with warp threads so you can come in, sit down and weave. It is the freedom to create, to paint with yarn and fibres to express our minds freely without regulations. Saori weaving ocercomes preconceptions of weaving, with no complicated patterns to follow, no worries about straight selvedges and no mistakes!

The Saori Shed is open by appointment five days a week for freestyle weaving sessions. Saori weaving looms are set up ready for you to start weaving.
