7-STRAND KUMI BRAID
This braid is easy to learn and works up quickly. It is similar in appearance to the round 8-strand Kumihimo braid, but with a slimmer width and greater flexibility. The great advantage of this braid is that it will accommodate beads of all different shapes and sizes more easily than the round braid. The braid can be made with all seed beads to create a rope, or with a focal front, utilizing a variety of beads. Strictly speaking, this is not kumihimo because it originated in Europe and not Japan, but the round kumihimo disk can be adapted for this technique. Students should have some experience with the regular kumihimo technique with beads. Compared to your typical 8-strand braid, this is faster and easier. Stringing beads before class will be a homework assignment. Allow 3 hours, $50 plus materials. Taught by Marianne Olbermann.
