What is Kumihimo?

Kumihimo is a popular art for jewelry makers and fiber enthusiasts. It’s easy to learn, and modern tools make the projects very portable.

How did this contemporary craze get its start?

Kumihimo is Japanese for “gathered threads”, This is an ancient Japanese form of braid-making. Cords and ribbons are made by interlacing strands to make a strong, decorative braided rope.

Kumihimo is an ancient art, dating as far back as the 6th century – some say even earlier. Family members and guilds passed on complex patterns and techniques were exchanged verbally to keep them secret, a tradition; some Kumihimo schools still practicing these methods today.

To bead or not to bead? That is the question.

In this case we will use glass seed beads on 8 cotton strands.

You will learn how to weave the cords, add a beads one at a time, work on a foam disk and produce beautiful bracelets and earings. 

Kumihimo is not difficult to learn and is attainable by many people of all ages. You will have a choice of colored beads and choose your color paterns.

All material is included as well as clasps and findings for you to complete your beautiful wearable art. 

Remember, we are playing it safe for everyone so we wear our masks and keep our social distances at all times.

Maximum 10 participant per class.

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy.  Please feel free to contact us at 419.756.1700 or debra@mansfieldartcenter.org
