Retreat Kits


What’s in the kit?

You’re going to write your own kumihimo pattern focusing on ombrés, color blocking, pattern blocking, and fades. Unlike most classes this isn’t about us all making a specific, predetermined design chosen by the teacher. You’re here to unlock your design talents and to learn HOW to come up with your own designs.

With that in mind, think of the kit as tools you will work with to hone your design skills. You’ll be writing your patterns based on the beads in your kit. Choose from one of ten color palettes for your kit.
