Braiding has long adorned clothing and other belongings. This is a chance to be shown some simple braiding techniques and to try them out in a small group.

The tutor

Steve Kennett is a regular demonstrator and volunteer at the museum, where he is also involved in researching Tudor knitted hose and spinning wool for the Interpretation team. He learned to spin some thirty years ago, taught by Dorothy Wilmshurst who had studied with Ethel Mairet at Ditchling in the 1930’s. Steve is Vice Chairman of the Association of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, and tutor at the Association’s Summer School. He is a member of the Online and Wealden Guilds.
