Beginning Braiding on the Marudai with Terry Flynn

Braids are marvelously designed little textile gems. Their structures range from simple to complex. The yarns and colors that you choose will give them their personality. Your interests will drive whether you gravitate toward braids that require simple and rhythmic steps, or you move on to complex braids that demand more intense focus. And there are endless ways that you can use them in functional and creative artwork.

Customer reviews:

Terry is an outstanding teacher.  No wasted time.  She obviously had a very well thought out lesson plan that covered an amazing breadth of topics in an orderly progression.  She demonstrates several braids, where each on is adding a new hand movement.  

I have been braiding for several years, and have taken in person and online classes and still walked away with a lot of information that will make me a much better braider.  Highly recommend for all skill levels.
