Beginner Kumihimo Bracelet Class (Beginner)

Friday, November 28th 10:30a.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. 

Class Fee $25

Approximate Materials Fee $40 and up
