Kumihimo Basics

with Beads

Have you been wanting to learn what all the talk about kumihimo is all about? Learn the basics of this hot trending style from actually an old Japanese technique of braiding, traditionally done with gorgeous strands of colored silk. The belt used on the kimono, the obi, was tied by a kumihimo cord, the obijime. Kumihimo is a beautiful art that is culturally significant and can make exquisite necklaces or bracelets. Learn the basics of kumihimo and you will be hooked! In this class we will introduce the use of beads and discuss how to create different patterns.
