Mihoko Wakabayashi

Mohair Melody, Mihoko Wakabayashi

Mihoko Wakabayashi was born and grew up in Japan. She learned weaving by working with young people (K-12) who had difficulties in school in Japan. Although her major in college was in education, she has always loved working with hands especially in art. Since she opened her studio “SAORI Worcester” in 2000 as the first SAORI Weaving studio in US, she has taught many people including people with various disabilities, became involved in the community, and led the movement of SAORI Weaving in Canada-US while pursuing her own creativity.
