Another Kobe afternoon…

So, this week I had a group of girls from Kobe, Japan visiting my studio. Each year, the International Education program brings students from Kobe to visit Salt Spring Island. Part of their visit is to have a hands-on art experience at one of the local artist studios.

So, I think this is the 4th year now that some of the students have come to my studio for the afternoon. It’s always fun to show the Japanese students SAORI weaving – which comes from Japan!

Last year when I was in Kobe, I went to the SAORI studio there and got some brochures so that I could let the girls know that they can continue Saori weaving when they get home.

They all wove a piece to take with them – this year they were loving the stripes – and lots of pink and blue!!

This was another Kobe afternoon in 2008 – here.

So much fun!

And I just had to take a picture of the shoes!

    I love how Saori weaving began in Japan, and is blooming here in Canada now. What is so magical is that it spirals around. circling back to Japan in the hearts and minds of these lovely young newly inspired weavers! A beautiful thing indeed!

    Thanks all – it was a lot of fun – and always a special treat to have them come all the way from Japan and try out Saori weaving in Canada!

    Happy Weaving,
