Blossom Festival

Yesterday was the Blossom Festival on Salt Spring Island and
a picnic in the Japanese Garden.

Blossoms!

I prepared my loom with a “blossom warp” using the colours of cherry blossoms and some spring green.

At the event there were many Japanese things to see, do and listen to – calligraphy, haiku, music, aikido demonstrations, bento boxes, beautiful plants for sale
and of course SAORI weaving!

I had a lot of people come by to learn more about SAORI weaving and to try it out by adding to the Blossom Banner.

It was so great to be out again and sharing the joy of weaving with others!

Here is what has been done so far. I’m hoping to take the loom back out
to the Earth Day festival and have more people weaving.
