Rehoboth Art League
REHOBOTH BEACH, DE – August 28, 2017
Local instructor Edilu Nehrbas will teach “Kumihimo: Japanese Braiding with Beads” at the Rehoboth Art League on Thursdays, September 14 through October 5, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Kumihimo translates into “braided cord.” Braiding has enjoyed a very long history in Japan with evidence dating back to 7,500 BC. The styles and uses for the braids have changed over time. The heyday of the braiding technique in Japan occurred during the Middle Ages when braids were used for lacing together Samurai suits of armor, sword hilts, ties for kimonos and even harnesses for horses. Today kumihimo has become a hot trend in jewelry all over the world. Using a foam Kumihimo disk and plastic bobbins participants in the “Japanese Braiding with Beads” series of classes will learn to create their own beautiful beaded jewelry. The cost of this series of four classes is $150 for both members and non-members.
