Angela and Ria will present Kumihimo.
Braiding is a traditional craft in many cultures. The literal translation of the Japanese name "kumihimo" means the "coming together (kumi) of threads (himo)". We will work with both hand-held disks and marudai (braiding stools). Braids can be used in many applications, from jewelry to accessories to home décor. Kumihimo is a great complement to weaving, sewing and other techniques as a custom accent.
