Welcome to SAORI-Way: found in translation!
This "blog" is an experiment in reading, thinking, writing and conversing about the SAORI philosophy and weaving introduced in Osaka, Japan during the late 1960's by SAORI founder Misao Jo. The point of departure is Misao Jo's book, SAORI: Self-Innovation Through Free Weaving (2012). Posts start with close readings of sections of Self-Innovation, and move on to explore connections between the creative process prompted by SAORI-way thinking, Japanese aesthetic culture (in general) and Zen philosophy (in particular), Western artistic and philosophical cultures and ideas, and more.
The "beta" version is currently available (here) by permission to SAORI instructors in the SAORI Global studio network and their students and studio members, experienced SAORI weavers, students of Ready to Hand Studio: SAORI Philadelphia. Contact Leslie (email@example.com) for the site password if you are connected to the SAORI studio network as described above, or to add your name to the subscription list when the site goes "live" in the near future.
May all our weaving express our common humanity. May your weaving express who you are or hope to be. And may you find and contribute to the creative community that nourishes you.
