OUR STUDIO When you step into Loop of the Loom, light music and cheerful colors invite you to your own pre-set loom. In this experience, you will spend the day relaxing, enjoying the gentle weaving rhythm in our peaceful zen dojo. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Our looms are simple and easy to use, in the first few minutes we will guide you on how to get started and then that’s it! You will be amazed at how quickly you pick it up, and the weaving obsession begins! As your session progresses, we will be on hand to answer any questions and to support your learning. WHAT YOU CAN CREATE In a 7-hour session, you will have time to experiment with many different techniques and materials. Depending on how quickly you weave and what yarns you use, you will be able to weave a scarf or a tapestry. But no need to rush! Take your time, enjoy the process, and the results will reflect your experience. ZEN WEAVING IS YOUR CREATIVE JOURNEY. Relax...this is "Zen weaving". You will find tranquility and relaxation in the rhythm of movement and color. NO MISTAKES! Unlike machine-made weaving, we don't teach you how to make conventional, mass-produced fabric. We encourage you to do what only human beings can do. Let your creative mind play while exploring our collection of over 400 yarns. Be open-minded and follow your heart, this way your piece will be unique and reflect your true self.
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, a place 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. @loopoftheloom Check out our other experiences: www.airbnb.com/experiences/1089631?source=p2 www.airbnb.com/experiences/899840
