Kumihimo braided bracelets

The final workshop in our Japanese inspired craft series at the beautiful Crary Gallery in Warren, PA.

If you ever enjoyed making friendship bracelets, or doing boondoggle at camp, then you will love the elegant art of kumihimo braiding. This modern take on a traditional weaving skill allows you to manipulate up to 32 different colored threads to create beautiful round woven cords. By changing the positions of the different colors you can create a variety of patterns in the finished cord. Participants will learn the basic technique, and the workshop will allow you to experiment with different colors and textures of weaving materials to make your cords your own. Jewelry finishings will be supplied, along with direction, so you can turn your finished cord into a beautiful bracelet or necklace.
