More Kanzashi Flowers Kit

£ 14.99 each
  • Description

Make beautiful folded flowers using traditional Japanese techniques. This kit shows how to make more advanced flowers, incorporating layering, rolling & cutting.

"Kanzashi" is the general term, in English, for traditional Japanese folded flowers. The word comes from Hana Kanzashi - ornamental flower hairpin, traditionally worn by trainee geisha (hana is the actual word for flower).

A starch adhesive, not normally available in the UK without importing, is the key to making these little flowers successfully. Gina-B Silkworks' has had this adhesive specially developed and it is manufactured here in the UK, allowing crafters to try this beautiful, traditional craft.
