NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! When you step into Loop of the Loom, light music and cheerful colors invite you to a pre-set loom waiting for you. In this experience, you will create your own in our peaceful and meditative zen weaving dojo. Within a minute you will learn to start weaving by yourself. Don’t worry—it’s very easy and fun! As your session progresses, we will be on hand to answer any questions and help any time you need us. ZEN WEAVING IS YOUR CREATIVE JOURNEY. Be open-minded and follow what you like. Relax…this is "Zen weaving". It will allow you to find tranquility and relaxation in the rhythm of movement and color. NO MISTAKES! You can weave freely as you like. Unlike conventional weaving, we don't teach you how to make fabric like machine made. We always try to do what only human beings can do. Let your creative mind find your true self through playing and exploring with yarns from over 500 colorful and natural materials. TIME FLIES WHEN YOU'RE HAVING FUN! In a two hour session, you can complete a tapestry-size woven piece to take home!
I'm a certified instructor of SAORI Weaving since 2005. SAORI is a free-form of weaving which was developed in Japan based on the Zen philosophy. After I studied in Japan and continued to practice, I founded Loop of the Loom where everyone can weave for self-healing, self-discovery, and self-expression. I've been guiding thousands of beginners and apprentices from all over the world. Weaving has changed their life for the better. SAORI facilitates mindful meditation and lets us awaken to human equality - as a leader of the SAORI community, this is something I would like to share with you.
