INTRODUCTION TO KUMIHIMO with Anna Murphy
The art of Kumihimo originated in Japan. Students will learn about the various tools and materials used in contemporary Kumihimo jewelry. Most of the class time will be spent in practice of the basic round braid (kongoh gumi), and students will leave with a simple bracelet utilizing a button/loop closure. If time allows, other closures and braid types will be demonstrated with samples. Students will take an original pattern with them for practice at home. Kits will also be available for purchase.
Materials student should provide: scissors, pen or pencil for note-taking
Materials instructor will provide: All materials and disks, original patterns, printed handouts
