The ancient Japanese craft of Kumihimo creates a beautiful unique cord, perfect for using up bits of left-over yarns. We will focus on learning the basics of creating a Kumihimo braid. A variety of samples showing the possibilities of combining of colors and fibers will also be provided. Then we will discuss options for using the cords to create buttons, ties, frogs and other custom closures.
Get a taste of the basics of Kumihimo and leave inspired by the boundless possibilities for those small amounts of leftover fiber!
