Chiaki O’Brien on Minnesota Original

Minnesota Original is a fantastic Minnesota Public Television show. It’s a weekly arts series “celebrating Minnesota‚Äôs creative community, across all disciplines and all cultures.” I believe last weekend was the original airing of episode #805, which features four artists. Two of the segments are right up my alley. One is Sally Power, a paper marbling artist demonstrating at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, something I tried at MCBA for the first time last month. The other artist I was delighted to watch was Chiaki O’Brien. I took my SAORI loom class from Chiaki, and also bought my loom from her. Watch her six minute segment, excerpted from the entire episode, and learn more about Chiaki and her work.
