Yukako Satone from Loop of the Loom shared work she did in conjunction with the New York Botanical Garden. For the NYBG’s holiday event, Yukako gave participants a quick lesson on SAORI weaving, which they then practiced on a loom using MFTA trim and thread. SAORI is a free-style hand weaving technique from Japan that has no rules or restrictions. Without limitations, the medium allows for total expression; there are no samples to follow, and no mistakes to make. I’ve never tried it myself, but it certainly sounds interesting. A “ZEN art… that is dedicated to free expression and self-development”? Sign me up.
