The above photograph is a representation of the bracelet that will be made in class. The actual bracelet colors may be different and there will be various color choices offered at the class for students to choose from.

This is a great class to learn the basic ‘8-cord’ Japanese braiding technique known as “Kumihimo”. Although this technique may appear complicated, it is a fun and easy technique to learn. Most students begin learning Kumihimo braiding with only cords and no beads. The ‘beginning’ Kumihimo classes Anne has taught previously have included beads. She has found that students can learn – in their first class – Kumihimo braiding with beads as easily as without AND have more fun!  Please stop by Imagine to see the sample bracelet.  Bring your smile (and eyeglasses if needed) and come have an afternoon of fun.

Maximum Class Size: 6 – Limited seating for the class. Please call for reservations. Additional class dates can easily be added.
