Weave and Create a New-Sew SAORI Hat

August 30, 2019
9:00 am – finished

Handmade Saori Weaving Studio
Belton, TX

This no-sew hat is woven on the loom and requires no sewing to complete the finished hat. Students will be able to choose a general color category for their warp (background) threads. The looms will be prewarped and ready to go. It is expected that most students will finish in half a day, and faster weaver’s may even finish earlier in the day. However, Friday afternoon is available for those requiring a bit longer to complete their project.

No-Sew Hat Workshop fees: $65 includes use of warped loom and all materials

Space is limited so sign up early!

Redding Method Dyeing Class
with Lois Mittleman

September 10, 2019
10 am – 4 pm
Handmade Saori Weaving Studio
Belton, TX


Redding Method is a dynamic protein fiber dyeing methodology based on science and artistry that allows us to reach bright, intensive and consistent colors. Students will learn the basic principles and tenets that will allow them to reach these very deep colors. Redding Method is a new approach to dyeing. Throw away the tablespoon and cup measure! By using Redding Method principles in the workshop, students will dye their own pot of raw protein fibers and will reach these colors.

Cost of workshop: $160 due at registration
Workshop cost includes stove rental, 1 lb. of fiber, all dye and materials.
Students should bring a 12-20 quart pot, paper, pencil, and lunch

Lois has been involved in the fibers since the 1980’s. She weaves, makes baskets, creates jewelry, spins, and knits. She received her Redding Method Master Dyer Certificate and became a Redding Method Certified Teacher in 2018. Lois loves creating the bright, intense colors that Redding Method makes possible. You can do it too!
