Kumihimo Necklace

  • MN Landscape Arboretum 3675 Arboretum Drive Chaska, MN, 55318 United States (map)

Kumi himo is Japanese for "gathered threads," and is descriptive of a historic Japanese braiding technique. Kumihimo cords were used by samurai on their armor, and are now used to secure haori jackets and kimono sashes. Immerse yourself in this traditional and centuries old method to create a statement bracelet. Students will learn how to incorporate beads into the traditional 8 warp round braid. Once you are comfortable with the steps you will be able to create bracelets and necklaces in a wide variety of patterns and designs. You will leave with a finished bracelet and knowledge to make more kumihimo jewelry!
