Japanese Braiding for the Takadai and Marudai

About class

This workshop is about flexibility and, as much as possible, tailored to each student’s needs. The braids made on the takadai are obliquely woven structures making both plain and twill weaves. The braids can also make double weave and have complex pick up patterns. All the braids are obliquely interlaced and have a wonderful drape. These braids can be made as scarves, belts and straps. All of these and more can be made on the Japanese braiding equipment. Students wishing to work on and find creative answers for specific projects; for example jewelry, sashes or clothing embellishments, are encouraged to bring their beads, bangles and buckles. Takadai’s are not supplied for the class, however two are available for rental. If you do not have one a Mauradai can be available with advance notice.
