The Art of Japanese Kanzashi : Folded Fabric Flowers

, Textile artist, Filmmaker, Teacher

Tsumami Kanzashi is the ancient Japanese art form of folded fabric flowers, most commonly seen arranged into beautiful hair ornaments. Kanzashi reached its height of complexity and size during the Edo period, and today are worn by Geisha and during weddings. Simpler Kanzashi are a fun craft and a pretty accent to any modern wardrobe.

In this class, students will learn 4 methods for folding the petals of their Kanzashi flowers, arranging those petals into a flower, and attaching their flower to a hair clip or brooch.
Everyone goes home with at least a few Kanzashi items!

All materials will be provided: An insanely large selection of fabric and buttons, scissors, needles and thread, pins, hot glue gun, and blank hair clips, barrettes, and brooches.
