Boot Camp – Edo Yatsu to Oimatsu & Beyond

Join Adrienne for her first in-depth virtual marudai course exploring multiple braid structures within the Edo yatsu family of braids. The lesson plans start with the basic 8-strand Edo yatsu braid and progress in difficulty with each introduction of a new braid throughout the sessions. Each braid will build on previous structures giving students a better understanding of the intricacies of the different variations. Students will learn the fundamentals of hand movements, color placement and the repetition of sequences.
