This week I had students from Ithaca Creek State School learning to do Kumihimo.
have this school every year but this is the first year they have chosen to do the Kumihimo. Usually they choose the Dyeing Activity because it fits in well with Term 4 Science.
Mind you, I think they are converted to Kumihimo. The teachers were amazed at the high levels of concentration.
Most of this group chose to take their braids homes for the Teddies. There was one boy who was thrilled to be able to wear his as bracelet. The colours were the same for the Newcastle Knights NRL team, his favourite team.
