Kumihimo: the Art of Japanese Braiding Online Course  

Kumihimo is an ancient Japanese technique used to make beautiful cords. Learn a little bit of history about how the braids have been used, then make two different cords which can end up as bracelets or necklaces. Students will learn how to braid on a kumihimo disk, ways to design and add beads, and how to make a closure without the need for jewelry findings. At the end of class students will have two finished bracelets and the knowledge to design and make more. Students will receive a booklet to download and a kit of materials by mail. This course is open to adults and to youth ages 10 and up registering with an adult.
