A Double Helix kit is required for this class.  Be sure to add one to your order.

Date:  Sunday, July 23

Time:  5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Location:  Design & Adorn in Tucson, Arizona (4630 E. Grant Road)

Event type:  In-person class

Class Tuition:  $65 

Kit Required:  Yes.  Be sure to add one to your order today.

Homework Required:  Yes.  You will need to set up your kumihimo disk, string some of your beads, and braid the first 1/3 of the necklace before coming to class.  Homework instructions will be included with your kit.  

Will the project be completed in class? No

Covid Protocols: Masks required. HEPA filters in use.

What if I need to cancel?  Please treat this registration like any other non-refundable special event.  Double check your schedule before signing up and then put it on your calendar and set some reminders.  Last minute cancelations hurt me because then I don't collect as much tuition for my class and it hurts other people who wanted to take the class, but couldn't because it was sold out. 

That being said, I understand that life happens.  Do not come to class if you are sick or have a known Covid exposure.  If you are sick and need to cancel, I will refund the tuition portion of your class fee.  The kit portion of the class fee ($65) is non-refundable because I will have already sent you your kit so you could do the homework.

    Double Helix is an all levels kumihimo project, and assumes you already know the basic kumihimo skills:

    • how to thread a needle
    • how to tie an overhand knot
    • how to set up the disk for braiding
    • how to read a stringing chart
    • how to string beads
    • how to drop beads and lock them in place in the braid
    • how to bind off the ends of your braid
    • how to glue on endcaps

    Double Helix is not recommend for a first beaded kumihimo project Since you're braiding around a core, the Double Helix is more appropriate for braiders with some previous beaded kumihimo experience.
