Summer Wildflowers - by Terri Bibby

In the Studio

Coming up this month are Summer Retreat Days, July 20, 21 & 22 via Zoom.  You can take 1, 2 or all 3 days. 

Day 1 will be Sakiori Weaving - weaving with strips of cloth.  I will go over the Sakiori cutter, Sakiori shuttle as well as other ways to make cloth strips (having the tools is not required).  Then we will discuss options for weaving.  Much of the day will be hands-on with check-ins along the way.

Day 2 is Bengala Dyeing - eco mud dyes from Japan.  We will talk about the Bengala Dyes and then I will demo some options for dyeing cloth, yarn, warps and more.  Again, much of the day will be hands-on.  You do need some dyes and prefix for this class, as well as some things to dye.

Day 3 is SAORI-style Tapestry Weaving - various techniques.  I will demo some ideas and techniques throughout the day as you weave your own tapestry weaving.

Please check out details on my website.

Also, coming up:
Zoom at your Loom - July 10 10-12 (Pacific) - A SAORI warping demo using the Kenzo method of warping

July 9 11-12 (Pacific)
August 6 11-12 (Pacific)

August workshops are still TBA.

All registrations are by email as I do not have an online registration system.

In the Shop

I have most of the loom options in stock, please call or email me to discuss what SAORI Loom might best suit you.

I also have a variety of the Bengala Dye kits, many warps (including custom warps), curated baskets of weaving supplies and most of the accessories you may want for your loom or for warping.  You can see my shop on ETSY for reference - and then email me to let me know what you are interested in.


If you haven't already seen it, please check out the Words to Weave exhibit which features 14 SAORI Artists.  Each person has chosen words that inspired them and created a weaving (or multiple weavings) based on that inspiration.  Each entry is so different from each other.  There are so many beautiful, moving and inspirational weavings to see!

Please watch for a Call to Entry later this summer for the next Virtual Exhibit.

Happy Summer and Happy Weaving,
