Kumihimo Workshops

Workshops - Kumihimo

Learn the basics of this ancient Japanese braiding technique. Students will use a kumihimo disc (a modern foam version of the traditional marudai)  to create eight-strand cords in a variety of patterns. This fast and fun technique is a sure winner.  There are several variants on the workshop organized from basic to more advanced - but have no fear, no prior experience is required for any of these! I have taught these classes for several years to all skill levels, and everyone leaves with a beautiful finished piece. You will be amazed at what you can do!

All workshops include supplies needed to create the project, including a foam kumihimo disk that is yours to keep. Additional materials for future projects may be purchased separately if you want to keep going!
