Day 3 with Shigeomi Ohashi: the afternoon

Ohashi-san wove using the Kikkō pattern mainly because he could see how it resonated within my own work.

The most important step was the set out of the first strands of bamboo because it would affect the rest of the weaving.

Half way through Ohashi asked me to take over from him and with his guidance I kept weaving. We folded the ends into the weaving to complete the form and snipped them off. Ohashi-san applied heat to stiffen the bamboo and therefore keep its form. Beautiful.

It had been a very hot day with Typhoon 12 on its way. We relaxed and prepared for our special celebration at Hit Parade, a local Karaoke bar!
