Course Description

Learn to create beautiful jewelry using Kumihimo, an ancient Japanese braiding technique. In the first session you will make a basic braided cord necklace and discuss your plans for creating a beaded piece in the second session. You will bring beads of your choice to session 2.

Students must purchase the “Beadsmith Kumihimo Braiding Kit for Beginners” (which includes everything you will need, except beads for the second session) ahead of time and bring it to the first meeting. Kits are available online (Amazon, Walmart, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby) and in stores. Allow enough time to purchase online in case local stores are out of stock. Full retail cost is approximately $20-25; however Michaels frequently has coupons for up to ½ off.
