Discover the Japanese braiding technique of Kumihimo. In this one day taster course we will explore a variety of patterns to create some colourful Kumihimo braids which can be used to make jewellery, trims, belts etc. We will explore pattern using coloured and textured yarns. Suitable for all levels.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
This course will be held in the Textiles studio. Demonstrations and discussions on how to braid on the Kumihimo disc will be included around braiding and mixing different coloured threads.
Students will work on some short lengths of braid as colour, texture and pattern samples, then start on a longer braid which they can continue making after the class. The students will be shown how to make their braid into a necklace using metal catches.
Students can purchase some inexpensive catches from the tutor.
