I will be teaching a 3-day Kumihimo Workshop in Fort Bragg, CA. This is a lovely town on the Northern California coastline. The workshop will be held at the Henhouse Studio.
We will be braiding 3 projects in three days. I will be sharing both fiber and beading techniques. We will braid on both the Foam Disk as well as the Marudai.
The first project is a 16-strand Split Braid Necklace and we will attach a Donut Pendant with an 8-strand integrated loop. This is a
fabulous technique that can be used in many ways. (Foam Disk)
The second project is a 24-strand Continuous Design Braid with Color Changes throughout the length of the braid. The fun part is learning how to change colors seamlessly! You will make a bracelet in this class. (Foam Disk)
The third class is an adventure into beading. We will braid on both the Foam Disk and the Marudai (if you have one). I will take the mystery out of planning a beaded project, show you how easy it is to set up your Disk or Marudai, how simple it is to use a bead spinner and how to braid a beaded braid. We will make a beaded bracelet in this class. (Foam Disk, Marudai or both)
- The dates are May 17th, 18th and 19th 2018.
- Cost $280
- Materials for all projects will be provided with a minimal fee.
My style of teaching is very hands-on. I share lots and lots of samples and I encourage creative thinking. I love teaching and I work hard at encouraging you to be your best creative and confident self.
Braiders should have some Kumihimo experience.
