Have you learned the fun Japanese braiding technique called Kumihimo yet?  This is so much fun and very portable which makes it perfect for all of those summer road trips and vacations.  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.
