KUMIHIMO - The art of Japanese braid making: An introductory day workshop. "Kumi" means "coming together" and "himo" describes a length of cord......together they refer to the way of making braids. Traditionally, a wooden loom called a Marudai is used, and decorative and functional cords are produced using fine silks.

The decorative braids can then be used to make into jewellery, embellish garments etc. Dates by arrangement.
