Braid Making Taster Workshop

June 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Making braids and cords is such a useful skill for any textile person – weaver, knitter, or other. It’s not just about making braids, it’s what you can do with threads, yarns and ends, that can give that extra finishing touch to a project or garment.

This workshop is a must for anyone wishing to add some key skills to their repertoire, making braids and cords with minimal or no special equipment!

All materials included, no previous experience required.

Suitable for ages 14+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
