About ASI / Instructors / Chiaki O’Brien

Chiaki O’Brien

Chiaki O’Brien is a certified SAORI Weaving instructor. She had no formal training or background in fashion, textiles or art. Through SAORI Weaving, she found that to be an advantage. SAORI has taught her that it doesn’t matter, as long as she is enjoying creating. She has been weaving and creating since 1996 and adding other fiber arts. O’Brien loves sharing her passion with people young and old and learning from them as well. O’Brien taught a course like this during the Great Makers Exchange back in July and has also been a vendor at ASI’s Julmarknad.
