Wow! What a great turnout! 21 members attended our kumihimo hands on Saturday. Alicia and I introduced the beautiful Japanese braiding technique with lots of examples, tons of books and great design ideas. Alicia demonstrated her beautiful marudai and I gave some history and outlined what materials could be used. We demonstrated the 8 strand basic spiral design Yatsu-Kongoh-gumi which everyone then set up and braided on their own disk. We also demo’d a 16 strand braid and a flat braid.
