What you'll do

SAORI weaving has no rules and no mistakes. No weaving or fiber art experience is necessary. This is a fun time for everyone between the ages of 5 to 105. You will choose yarns from our vast selection giving you many options with which to express your creativity. I will demonstrate how to weave on a SAORI floor loom which is very accommodating and easy to use. The looms are already set up for you to begin weaving immediately. You will start weaving and learning tricks that will help you to create your own design. The 2 1/2 hour weaving session will be spent creating a weaving that reflects your personality with colors, textures, and techniques. The fun begins immediately. Warning: this is an addictive, creative, and fun experience that you will remember for a long time.
From this experience you will leave with a woven art piece that is a unique expression of yourself. It is a great souvenir of your travels. I have taught many, many weavers and no two pieces have been alike, but all have been wonderful.

My passion is weaving and using fiber to express myself. I have been weaving for over ten years. I have been involved in SAORI style weaving for five years, a recognized SAORI weaving teacher for 3 years. I have a wonderful SAORI studio with hundreds of yarns for students to use to create with. We weave on SAORI floor looms. The SAORI style of weaving promotes self expression, weaving from the heart.

Book this experience for your next visit to SLC! If you have any interest In art, design, textiles or just enjoy keeping your hands busy - you’ll love this special session with Karen. Karen has a beautiful studio with a large amount of quality materials for weaving. Our class ranged from people who never touched a loom to others that had a BA in textiles - Karen made everyone feel welcome! I took this class with a friend but it would also be fun single since Karen creates such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

This was a really great experience. I live locally and took some of my family as an alternate Christmas gift. We all got the chance to create something memorable. Karen was welcoming and knowledgeable and provided a warm, comfortable space. Some or all of us will probably try to do this again. Cool medium! If you have any interest in weaving or creating this experience is a must.
