Brightly-coloured Saori style weaving
MoMu I Monica Ho

Saori-style weaving is based on creativity and free expression. No two pieces are the same, there are no rules or patterns to follow and no right or wrong. On the contrary, mistakes are regarded as opportunities that lead to new discoveries and emphasise the unique personality of the weaver.

After learning the basic technique, you can experiment with yarns, ribbons, strips of old clothing, fake fur, pom poms, even stuffed animals, plastic toys and anything you find interesting. One thing is certain: you will head home with a unique Saori-style wall hanging!
