Needle binding - an ancient craft

Beginners class

Students don’t have to bring anything unless they want to use their own wool yarn.

Needle binding is one of the oldest methods in textiles. Needle binding takes a lot longer to work with than for example knitting or crochet (but it lasts longer because it can’t unravel) and is suitable for smaller pieces like beanies, socks and mittens. 
There are many different stitches from very simple to complicated. You will learn 2-3 stitches and will learn how to create a beanie, socks or mittens.
