Kumihimo Lesson

20


20 simbi per session - Virtual OK

Kumihimo is a traditional Japanese technique of braiding. There are many kinds of braids, and limitless variations of pattern, colors, and number of strings. I will teach you 3-5 braids, depending on pace and comfort.
For the lesson, I will loan you my kumihimo disk, bobbins, and a weight for tension. You can bring embroidery floss or similar string, or I will give you some of mine to keep. If you want your own disk, bobbins, or tension weight, they are available for purchase online. In place of circular plastic bobbins, clothes pins work well, and I use a large fishing weight for tension.

Training & Qualifications


I've been braiding kumihimo for about 4 years.

I'm an electrical engineering major/physics minor, and my first degree is an associates in Wind Turbine Technology. I have lots of interests and hobbies. My latest job was as a stagehand at a music ve...nue, the one before that was an engineering co-op. I've also done carpentry for a professional theater. I like sewing, reading, biking, gardening, music, embroidery, weaving, writing, theater, and vegan food. I'd like to learn more about garb-making, costuming, embroidery, drawing/painting, weaving, color theory, music theory, guitar, piano, carpentry, electrical work, photography, and some second language. I'm still trying to figure out what I have to offer on Simbi.show more
