You will be able to create your own color combinations in this class, so be sure to allow time to select your beads – sometimes the hardest part of jewelry designing.

Class Fee $25

Approximate Materials for Necklace $40 (you will have leftover beads to create other pieces and leftover wire as well.)

Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class

Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class (Beginner)

Saturday, February 11, 2017 10:30-1p.m.

I know there are a few of you out there still that haven’t tried Kumihimo yet.  This is so much fun and very portable which makes it perfect for doing in front of the tv or on a road trip to visit relatives (as long as you aren’t the one driving – LOL).

Once you learn the ins and outs of this technique you will be hooked.  In this class you will learn how to braid with just cords and with beads.  You must pick up your beads, cord, and bobbins before this class because there is homework for you to do before the class.  Allow approximately 2-3 hours for this class. #kumihimo #kumi

Class Fee $25

Approximate Materials Fee $35 and up
