Art yarn and SAORI weaving

2nd-7th September 2018

With Chris Jukes as Spinning Tutor and Rosie Green as SAORI Instructor

Materials included, 5 nights, full board. £750-850, single or twin rooms. Non en-suite/en-suite


In this 5 day retreat we aim to  give you time:

-time you need to breath and to be you

-time to see, feel, and absorb the peace and beauty of your surroundings

-time to express yourself through your own instincts and natural creativity.


The mornings will be spent learning or refining spinning techniques and the afternoons weaving and adding those yarns into your own unique SAORI cloth. No rules, No mistakes!

“We shall weave without restriction or restraint, weaving any way we like”. Misao Jo, Founder of SAORI Weaving


This course is designed for those with spinning experience and, while weaving experience is not necessary, the number of SAORI looms available is limited so we encourage those who have their own (SAORI loom) to bring it.
