Leather Feather Bracelet – $70.00

Thursday, March 23, 2023 |5pm-7pm

Instructor: Yin Guang
Level: All Levels
Technique: Anda Gumi 
Skills and techniques taught: Anda Gumi 

Description: The secret to this surprisingly simple project is leather cords and a metal feather braided in together on the round foam disk. It’s a flat Anda leather braid on the round foam disk!

Using leather for the Kumihimo project is a great way to extend your skills and to make some really unique piece. Working with leather is unlike working with soft fabric on the disk although you are using the same technique.

Students will learn the Anda Gumi technique, and braid a feather into the flat braid.

You WILL complete this project in class.
