About the Course

KUMIHIMO - The art of Japanese braid making: An introductory workshop. "Kumi" means "coming together" and "himo" describes a length of cord......together they refer to the way of making braids. Traditionally, a wooden loom called a Marudai is used, and decorative and functional cords are produced using fine silks.

In this introductory workshop, we will use a card loom with wool and cotton yarns to learn the basics of this braiding technique. The decorative braids can then be used to make into jewellery, embellish garments etc. Dates by arrangement.
