In this two-hour course, you will use beautiful imported traditional Japanese Mizuhiki to create two pairs of earrings that you can gift or treasure for yourself!

Mizuhiki is a decorative Japanese cord and also the term used to describe the art of tying it into intricate shapes. Mizuhiki was created to tie Samurai hair back as they went to battle, traditionally made from Kimono silks wrapped around Washi paper. Mizuhiki is now associated with wishing good luck or good fortune and often used in gift wrapping for auspicious occasions like weddings.

Anna will show you different tying techniques and designs that are used in this beautiful art including the Plum knot and Awaji knot as well as a set of instructions so you can continue tying when you get home!




Anna especially loves creating activities that all age groups can enjoy together, she is a strong believer in craft creating special memories and bonds and therefore welcomes students aged 13+ (with an accompanying guardian) to join in this mixed-aged session as well as any participants over 16 years unaccompanied.
