Japanese Tea Pavilion
- 2215 Pan American Way, San Diego, CA 92101 | Directions
The teriyaki bowl with salmon, the sweetish udon soba noodle soup with tofu kitsune, and even the California sandwich piled high with “krab” meat are good and feel Japanese. Inexpensive.
ExhibitsArt of Saori Weaving
Features hand-woven clothing, accessories, woven wall hangings, and banners along with a collection of mosaic and fused glass art made by the artists of Sophie’s Gallery, the off-campus art program of St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center. The Saori method of weaving is based on the philosophy of freestyle weaving for everyone and emphasizes that there are no mistakes in art. Sophie’s weaving program began in 2010 when a Saori loom was purchased from the son of the Saori founder, Kenzo Jo, at the International Conference on Arts & Disabilities held in Washington DC. The Saori loom includes adaptive equipment for hands-free and foot-free weaving as well as height adjustability for wheelchairs, making it a perfect fit for St. Madeleine’s students. Sophie’s weaving classes are comprised of three to four weavers at a time working in 15-minute shifts. Together they weave the material for clothing and wall hangings using organic fibers such as wool, silk, and bamboo to increase the quality of the finished products. Sophie’s weaving program makes a difference in the lives of the artists, giving them self-confidence, greater independence, and a chance to let the world know about their talents. Runs August 9 to October 27.
