Sarah Dauro: Textiles, Studio 103
Sarah Dauro has created textile art since she was a child. She learned sewing, embroidery, knitting, cross-stitching, needlepoint, and crocheting before she discovered her passion, weaving. For the past two years, Sarah has been creating fabric and garments using the Saori weaving method. Saori is a weaving philosophy, developed in Japan in the 1960s but influenced by a centuries-old wabi sabi aesthetic. Saori weaving emphasizes creativity and expression where there are no mistakes, and imperfections in the fabric are embraced. Anyone can learn Saori weaving, and Sarah offers classes for children and adults. Sarah also creates hand-woven clothing, including hats, scarves, ponchos, and more.
For hand-woven garments and classes in Saori weaving, visit Sarah at her
first floor Studio 103 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
Handmade SAORI™ Weaving Studio is NOT your traditional weaving studio! Saori weaving is all about color, texture, and exploring your own creativity or expressing your emotions through woven cloth. Saori, a contemporary weaving philosophy, was developed in Japan nearly 50 years ago with a primary goal of being a type of weaving that could be done by anyone regardless of age, gender, physical ability or mental aptitude. Some people say that Saori is also good for people with no artistic ability, but true Saori philosophy emphasizes that EVERYONE has artistic ability and encourages helping students to find and embrace the art within themselves.
