Welcome to the VCHSG SAORI Study Group



This study group will explore incorporating SAORI concepts and techniques into weaving and encourage members to embrace their own uniqueness with their weaving.

Members should have basic weaving skills and ability to warp a loom for plain weave.

To participate in our Saori Study Group, you must be a current member of VCHSG. If you are not an active member of the Ventura County Handweavers and Spinners Guild, please visit our Membership page.

What is SAORI?!



SAORI is a plain weave, creative, free-style approach to weaving pioneered in Japan. SAORI emphasizes finger manipulation, color, texture and self-expression.

SAORI is a great stash buster so the more fiber and yarns you have the better!

Sounds Cool, Are There Meetings?



Why yes, thank you for asking! We do have regularly scheduled VCHSG SAORI Study Group Meetings! We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 3:00pm. Please contact saori@vchsg.org for information on how to join our Zoom meetings!
