Join us for, Kumihimo: 16 Element Braids, with Rosalie Neilson

This workshop is open to the public. It makes use of marudai, the traditional Japanese braiding equipment, and is designed for participants familiar with 8-element braid structures who want to branch out into making more complex braids.

Participants will create a sampler of 16-element braids using two colors of silk or synthetic silk. Braids include "Oimatsu," "Naiki," "Tsukushi," 3 variations of "Mitake Gumi," and "Kongō Gumi."
