Intro to Kumihimo

Hand woven Japanese Kumihimo cord bracelet

Fri, 01 Oct 10:00AM (AEST)
7 hours 30 minutes

Description

Ready to dive into a craft from Japan that dates back to the 7th Century?

These hand woved cords are so beautiful, and yet deceptively easy to make. We will be making our Kumihimo bracelets from two colours of cord (a choice of colours is available for you to pick from when you get to class) and weaving them into a striking, yet incredibly comfortable bracelet.
This is a craft that you can do any where, and there is no end to the variations that you can explore.

Come along to Gilded Poppy Makery for a day full of laughs, great company and a beautiful new skill to show friends and family.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there,

Cheers

What you will learn

  • This is a relaxed, fun class where once you have the basic weave down, there's plenty of time to chat, make friends and have a good laugh as we work our way through the project. Perfect way to unwind, while doing something creative!

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10 am to 5:30 pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have morning tea ready for you when you get here. Coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Parking Info

Parking is easily available in Dorset Square. If you're coming for a 3 hour class, you can park anywhere the 3 hour limit is sign posted. If you're coming for an all-day class, you can park on the roof level of the Coles Parking Building for free all-day parking.


What to bring

  • Just yourself! A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.

What to wear

Casual, comfy clothing is fine for this class. No fire today, so anything you want to sit around in for the day is fine. I would suggest making sure that the rings and bracelets you wear won't snag on the cording we'll be using.

Appropriate for

This is an open beginner class, available to those from years 16 and up.

Welcome to the home of Gilded Poppy Makery, a fun, relaxing place to learn the art of Silversmithing.
Here you will meet new friends as you take raw materials and turn them into beautiful pieces of jewellery that will thoroughly impress your friends and family.

Small, intimate classes of no more than five people ensure plenty of one-on-one time with Storm as you put your new skills to the test creating a wide range of projects including rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets and pendants.

The various classes will cover techniques such as Soldering, Pierce-work, Filing and Finishing, Stone Setting, Fold-forming, Etching, Enamelling, Metal Clay, Kumihimo Cord Making, Viking knit, Wire Wrapping, Bone Carving and so much more. It's fair to say that there is something for everyone, and you won't be bored any time soon!

Book into your class today and bring a friend or two. With a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 people, these classes are perfect way to escape from the daily rat-race for yourself, or as a crafty get-together with friends.

Gilded Poppy Makery is a warm, inclusive place where learning is fun and mistakes are celebrated as 'Design Features' (we have a sticker with that very thing on it!). Bring your curiosity and a sense of humour and join us at the workbench.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all,

Cheers,

Storm

I enjoyed the class with Storm, she was friendly and helpful through out the class and the group was great to work with. I would recommend this class to everyone. Even if you had not done anything like this before, definitely suits beginners.
