Product Description
Warning: These braids are Addictive! If you need a fun and easy jewelry or textile related lesson, this is a FUN one! I used this lesson last Spring as students finished their Kente Cloth Cardboard Weaving lesson. These braids were a great time filler to keep students engaged while other students finished up their weaving lesson. I used simple paper plates to introduce the braiding method to students using craft yarn. Both boys and girls enjoyed making these braided cords in a variety of colors. Once students mastered the easy braiding method, I provided store bought foam Kumihimo looms to highly motivated students. I also gave them nicer,smoother yarn or doubled embroidery floss so that students could take the braided cords to a higher level to make finished jewelry with glued on end caps and clasps. I must admit I got hooked on the variety of beautiful color and design combinations that can be created easily. I spent a good amount of time this summer making myself a supply of bracelets to match my work cloths!
This product includes: Japanese Kumihimo art history handout, clear illustrated handouts, troubleshooting tips, 5l Kumihimo braid patterns: Spiral, Polka Dot, Zig Zag, Lattice and Multicolored Twist, Also, a handout to create and record designs that students discover how to make themselves.
