Weaving at the Kobe Saori Studio

Another studio that we visited was the Kobe Saori Weaving Studio. I have an interesting connection to Kobe – each year there are a group of high school students that come from Kobe to Salt Spring Island as part of an International Program. A few years ago I was invited to be one of the artists that the Kobe students had a chance to visit.

So now each year about 5 or 6 students from Kobe come to my studio to be introduced to Saori weaving. They are always surprised to learn that the origin is Japan. This year, I brought back brochures from the Kobe studio so that when they go home they might get to continue with Saori weaving!
