Kumihimo is the traditional Japanese craft of making beautiful and functional braids and cords using a specialized loom. Part 1 of the workshop will be learning how to make flat and round Kumihimo cord with Sherrill. Each student will receive a disk loom designed for braiding these elegant cords. Part 2 of the workshop will be led by Ashley and focus on using your cord to make a simple longstitch binding that will showcase the cord you make between classes. Vintage celluloid buttons will be offered as a wraparound element on the spine.
