In this workshop, you will learn to create a round braid using the Japanese braiding technique known as Kumihimo.
Learn how to create the basic braid incorporating shaped large magatama beads, determine the amount of thread and beads required; and how to finish the bracelet with a glue in clasp. You'll get all the tools and materials required to complete the bracelet at home in your own play time!
