Kasuri-Tsunagi Necklace: second workshop in Kumihimo Weekend Retreat
Date and Time: 04/27/2019 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM
Instructor: Laurel Kubby
Prerequisites: Any kumihimo experience.
Join Master Beader and Beadology Iowa co-owner Laurel Kubby for 3 days of intensive and fun kumihimo braiding. Take one class or all three.
This round braid has a huge advantage over kongo-gumi, the first braid that most people learn. It does not spiral. This allows you to have beads hang along one edge (or 2) without distortion. This is perfect for necklaces & bracelets. In this class, you will make a necklace with Swarovski pearls along one edge.
This technique is suitable for beginners (with some experience) on the marudai & adventuresome, experienced beginners on the disc.
Take one class for the price listed.
Take two classes for 10% off.
Take all three classes for $380—that’s 20% off.
To get these discounts, you will need to call the store at 319 338-1566 to register over the phone with a credit card or come for a visit.
