Meditative weaving

Rossland artist Sarah Elizabeth introduced Saori, or meditative hand weaving, to VISAC Gallery patrons last weekend.

A calmness set in the VISAC Gallery on Saturday for artist Sarah Elizabeth’s Saori or meditative hand weaving workshop. Saori weaving emphasizes creativity and free expression using small looms. There are no “rules” or restrictions, it is a free-style hand weaving with no rules and restrictions, no samples to follow, no mistakes weavers just weave what they want to with a complete freedom and creativity.
