What you'll do

We have made all the necessary adjustments to keep our experience a safe and enjoyable indoor activity for our students and staff. Your experience at our studio will still remain the same - making memories, making art, and having fun!

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 your true self through SAORI weaving.

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:

I’m so grateful for this experience! A beautiful two hours of creative meditation that, even though I had never used this medium or technique before, resulted in a piece I was proud and excited to hang in my apartment. I will definitely do this again with friends!

Highly recommend! You really do start weaving within a minute or two of arriving so I feel like you really get to make the most of your time there. I was the only one on the workshop and I really enjoying talking with the instructor while I worked. I have very little weaving experience and I love how mine turned out! They have 400+yarns to choose from and will show you difference techniques at request. Thank you for such a lovely evening!

Anna Mae was spectacular and knowledgeable of the craft. I never felt neglected as the class sizes are just right for individual attention. My partner and I have found a new found respect for weaving. Thank you again for the experience! 😊

The experience here was great! I went with my fiancé for Valentine’s Day for some quality time together. The owner was very good about cleaning/ sanitizing and mindful of COVID. The space was very open and inviting. The class itself was very relaxing. It’s easy to catch on to the weaving so I feel like I got a lot of time to experiment and make the tapestry unique. She gives you free reign to make the piece your own and also gives tips on techniques to try. I would definitely do this again.
