VERY IMPORTANT: The Kumihimo disk and 8 bobbins must be purchased PRIOR to class.

 

This is a great class for beginners, as well as students with some braiding experience, to learn the Japanese basic, round

“8-cord” 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 cords and no beads. Anne has taught previous

Kumihimo classes with beads braided in with the cords. This class will focus on the beauty of the braided cord itself,

along with decorative finishing techniques.
