What you'll do

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 piece in our peaceful and meditative zen weaving dojo. Within a minute you can 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. WABI-SABI Beauty without Intentions. Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese zen art of finding beauty in nature and soul. We encourage you to find yourself at your SAORI weaving through these eyes. Don't strive for perfection, imperfection is much more soothing and acceptable by you. TIME FLIES WHEN YOU'RE HAVING FUN! In a two hour session, you can complete a tapestry-size woven piece to decorate your home!

Your hosts

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. COVID-19 Update: Stressful times like these are precisely when we need zen, wellness practices in our lives. We have put the necessary measures in place to insure a relaxed, healthy studio environment that is safe for our customers.
