I took a little break from getting ready to teach a workshop in California to co-teach a little kumihimo braiding workshop to my guild, Missoula Weavers Guild.
Imagine being able to re-create amazingly complex braids with a little square of Masonite.
Although we looked at many wonderful reference books, the main source of inspiration comes from Roderick Owen's book, Braids, 250 Patterns from Japan, Peru and Beyond.
The process was just complex enough to keep everyone engaged and easy enough to be lots of fun.
No time to thread the loom today or to pack, but tomorrow is another day.
