Chiaki O’Brien

Chiaki O’Brien, a SAORI weaving artist/teaching artist, moved to Minnesota from Japan in 2004. SAORI is a contemporary weaving style which promotes a philosophy of free expression and the differences between hand and machine weaving. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.

As part of her 2013 Jerome Foundation grant project through Textile Center, she went back to Japan to further her knowledge and experience with Bengala natural soil dyes. In addition to weaving and dyeing, Chiaki is also a Taiko drummer!
