a large and gorgeous flower, often used as the main flower for Kanzashi. We will be making ken tsumami on the base of the hemisphere from the center. Two colors of chirimen are used to create a design with some sense of movement.
In this lesson, we will make a marugiku (round chrysanthemum) designed comb using Habutae. Habutae is a very thin silk, and it`s another Japanese traditional fabric the most popular fabric among craftsperson. Since it`s very delicate fabric, not so easy to use but you can make more small tsumami than chirimen. We will also learn hashi-kiri technique, the technique to lower the height of tsumami

In this lesson, we will make an adult kanzashi using habutae and chirimen. The main flower will be a design of three overlapping maru tsumami called "Sandan ume".

Assembling The Sandan Ume
In this lesson, we will assemble the ochirin and make it into a kanzashi for adults using a comb. We will also make a sagari design, called "hana-sagari," which means a sagari with a flower attached. Sagari will not be attached to the comb, but instead will be made separately using U-shaped hairpin. This kind of shape can be used for modern hairstyles and goes well with clothes.
