Braiding with Backbone-Kumihimo with Wire
Instructor: Marilyn Romatka
Required Skills: None - Beginners welcome!
What a twist! Kumihimo is an ancient Japanese braiding technique, normally used with silk strands. But in this class, we use the wooden Marudai braiding stand to coax out this open-work helix – as if by magic – into a 3-D necklace. No previous braiding experience necessary. Students will most likely finish their project in class.
Supplies Student Should Bring to Class: Wire snips (or come with a friend who has these.)
Supplies Provided by Instructor: All other materials provided by instructor, including the closure findings.
Time: 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm
$95 (includes $20 materials fee)
