Last week I had the opportunity to assist my friend and mentor, Chiaki O’Brien, teaching SAORI weaving to K-5th graders, at the Blake School just outside Minneapolis. To say it was an inspirational week is an understatement.
Over a year ago, an amazing student walked into my studio. She is bright and energetic and was searching for her “passion.” She sat at the loom and immediately knew it was where she belonged.
I’m so excited. I’ve been working on this behind the scenes for awhile now, and it’s been quite difficult not spilling the beans!! My SAORI journey has not only lead me down a wonderful road of creative expression, it’s lead me to open my doors as a saori inspired weaving studio!
