Sakiori: Japanese Rug Weaving and Contemporary Variations with Janney Simpson
Date: August 23, 24 and 25
Location: Hartford Artisans Weaving Center, Hartford CT

Sakiori clothing was first woven in about 1750 in Japan from recycled indigo dyed cotton rags usually on a bast fiber warp. This form of Japanese rag weaving continued up until about 40-100 years ago. It differs from traditional rag weaving in that all the recycled rag is used in the process…. the cloth and the loose threads from the warp or weft. Nothing is wasted.
In this workshop you will weave fabric yardage in structures that allow the recycled weft material to be seen on the surface yet also have integrity within the finished cloth. You’ll experiment and enjoy the feel of these old materials that can be transformed into contemporary cloth for today’s use. The workshop includes on-loom weaving and lectures at the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center. 3 Registration options offer the right fit for your loom needs and skill level!
