Miami, Florida, USA
Bob discovered kumihimo in early 2012 in a beaded braid class with Adrienne Gaskell. Out of that class grew an interest in fiber braids, and a course of study with other instructors: Makiko Tada, Roderick Owen, and Jacqui Carey. Bob works on the marudai and karakumidai, as well as the square braiding plate. His main interest is in the technical aspects of braiding, and incorporating unusual techniques and materials into his braids. In addition to teaching in Miami, FL and Cleveland, OH, he will be at the 2017 Bead & Button Show.
