Studio afternoon with Kobe students

Last week the studio was abuzz with music from Japan and Saori weaving. Four students from Kobe, Japan and another International Education student from Japan visited the studio for an afternoon.

The studio was set up and ready to go ….

Saori Salt Spring

Each of the students had a chance to weave on the Earth/Peace banner that will be going to Sendai Japan for ‘Saori Peace Weave 2008’ (pictures soon as it will be completed this week). And then they each wove a scarf for themselves to take with them.

Saori Weaving & Tea Time

Whenever I have a Saori class at my studio I like to have a tea break and serve a cuppa….now, not everyone takes a break, but the tea is always on.

And so I decided that I would like to have a tea cloth to place the pot and the cups onto. The warp is black cotton (one of the Saori pre-wound warps) and the weft is a thick cotton (8/8) with a thin variegated tencel and then bits and pieces of other weavings for shots of colour from the treasure basket.

Ruckle Park and Weaving an Earth Banner

On Sunday I went down to Ruckle Park on Salt Spring Island for “Ruckle Park Days”. The weather was beautiful and it was a marvelous day.

The 4Hers were there with their animals…

Saori weaving founder turns 95 …

Misao Jo is the founder of Saori weaving and has been weaving every day for over 40 years. In Japan they just celebrated her 95th birthday with a BBQ and an exhibition of some of her works.

You can see more information about her birthday exhibition here (under ‘What’s New’ click on Gallery and then the entry at the top about Misao Jo) and her birthday celebration here.

She still weaves every day and shares Saori weaving with others.  What an inspiration!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Weaving!
