Description
"The round kumihimo disk is most commonly used for variations on a spiral braid. Square (or rectangle) disks are available for flat braids (Une-Gumi), but a flat braid may be just as easily done on a round disk. This class will teach how to create a flat braid. An instruction book will be provided to all attendees, including several patterns. Persons wishing to bring their own disk, thread and weight should bring thread for 16 ends. Persons bringing their own disk, thread, and weight are free. Persons bringing their own disk and weight, but using thread I supply are $2. This includes persons who may have just taken the Intro to Kumihimo class, if they want to remove the braid they were making in that class to learn the flat braid. For persons wishing to buy a kit (round kumihimo disk, weight, thread for a bracelet, instructions), the fee is $5."
