Braiding with Backbone - Kumihimo with Wire

What a twist! The ancient exquisite Japanese braiding technique, Kumihimo, has gotten a lot of modifications lately. First the addition of beads to the silk strands, and now comes a new idea: Kumihimo with wire! This class teaches the delightfully easy tricks to coax this open-work helix out of the wooden braiding stand, the marudai. No previous braiding experience necessary. Students will watch this incredible structure appear, as if by magic, with easy moves. A fun and low-stress class.
