Saori weaving founder, Misao Jo, has passed away at the age of 105.
Saori is a method of weaving which allows the weaver free rein in order to allow creative expression and discovery of oneself. Misao Jo started the movement in 1969 and over the years has gathered awards from the Japanese Government and followers around the globe. It is, in fact, thanks to one of those weavers that we have had the news, so thank you for passing that on, Bronwen.
