Emi Ito – freestyle Weaving Demonstration and Sale
October 1 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Emi Ito, of Bath Maine, will be popping into the studios at 25 Pine St. Ellsworth ME to demonstrate her freestyle weaving during the weekend!
Emi Ito will be visiting Artsworth, the hub of creativity in Ellsworth Maine during Maine Craft Weekend. She will show her collection of fine and fun wearable scarves and accessories for sale. In the spirit of celebrating creativity, Emi will demonstrate her craft so others can see the magic of the making in person.
Emi Ito began her explorations in weaving from an early curiosity about form and texture which led her to take a Japanese Saori free-form weaving class, which emphasizes individual expression. The looms were already set up, and with few instructions, she says, “you could just pick your yarn and start weaving.” She has since studied and tried more traditional pattern-weaving techniques, but still prefers the freestyle method she first experienced in New York. It’s infinitely unique and allows her to put her handiwork into each piece.
