Introducing To Nalbinding

The Course

Nalbinding is the ancient craft of making flat or three dimensional textiles from loops of yarn. It predates knitting and crochet and has its origins in prehistory becoming popular in Early Medieval and Viking societies especially. During the day participants will explore the history and learn several key stitches. You’ll fashion your own nalbinding needle and take home sample swatches ready to start larger projects.
