Long and Winding Braid


Instructor: Makiko Tada

Students will create their braid projects using the half-sasanami technique which creates a lovely flat braid with turns and bends. This technique is suitable for making bracelets and necklaces, as it can produce unique patterns depending on the position of the bends. It is also possible to reverse the colors from outside to inside to produce a braid that changes colors.

Equipment provided by the student: Marudai, 16 tama, 40% counterweight, chopstick, scissors
