The beautiful Japanese craft of kumihimo, in which fabric cords are interlaced into an intricate braid, has been incorporated into Japanese fashion for centuries, from kimono accessories to samurai armor lacing. The design possibilities are endless, depending on the color, thickness and number of cords used. This traditional Japanese braiding recently gained renewed attention around the world thanks to the popular animated film Your Name (Kimi no Na Wa). At this workshop, join us to make your own one-of-a-kind kumihimo creation with mixed media artist Amanda HuAll materials are included. 
Tickets: $45/$40 Japan Society members, seniors & students
