Kimono Jacket

Monday 29 July, 1-6pm, Tuesday 30 July, 1-6pm, Wednesday 31 July 1-6pm

Three day designing, weaving and sewing workshop to create a kimono (inspired) jacket, 15 hours in total.

Some experience of Saori loom weaving is required, if you’re not sure about your skill level please email me at janine@freeweaver.co.uk

We will weave on Saori floor looms which have been threaded with a black Saori warp. It will be possible to buy a Saori limited edition warp at the studio or if you prefer, we have a wide range of warps in various colours and materials to choose from.

Yarns from the “yarn wall” are included and of course you are very welcome to bring along any of your own materials as well.
A range of Saori silks, saree yarns, Noro etc is available for sale at the studio.

We will start with creating the design, measurements, colour selection etc.

All Saori pattern books will be available to browse. You can choose another garment project if you would prefer.
You will have access to the weaving looms and yarns for the duration of the course as much as you like, giving you the possibility to weave some accessories (time permitting) such as belts, a pocket, bag of whatever you like.

The garments can be sewn by hand or on the studio sewing machine.
This is a group workshop for four participants maximum, everyone is invited to bring additional pattern ideas or handwoven garments along to inspire each other.

A selection of hand woven garments is available at the studio for inspiration.

You are free to weave at your own pace, take breaks, walks and browse all the Saori books at the studio as much as you like.

All participants are invited to exhibit their woven pieces during the upcoming Japanese Textiles and Craft Festival, 9-13 October 2019 at Craft Central, Isle of Dogs, London.

Coffee, tea and snacks are included.

Please let me know of any dietary requirements via janine@freeweaver.co.uk in good time.
