Denise prince - Saori Weaver
Award-winning jewelry designer Denise Prince’s lifelong interest in fiber arts took her on a journey through many of the handicrafts of the genre. When she found SAORI weaving she knew she had found her way home.
Denise studied SAORI Weaving in Minnesota with her mentor and teacher Chiaki O’Brien for over two years before moving to Georgia and opening her own Registered SAORI studio. Since then Denise has traveled to Japan twice to study with Kenzo Jo, the developer and manufacturer of the SAORI looms, and his teachers at SAORInoMori. During her first trip in 2013 she passed levels 3, 2, and A from the Saori Hand Weavers Testing Association. She is currently working towards level 1 and looking forward to her third trip to Japan.
Her journey with SAORI Weaving has brought her a new outlook on life and art. In her home studio in Peachtree City, GA, Denise teaches weaving, holds fiber related workshops, and hosts SAORI-kai—a time for sharing your SAORI journey with other SAORI travelers. The studio also hosts the local spinners group each month.
