Skill Level: No experience needed

Experience the joy of creation; shaping things out of simple materials. Explore the ancient form of textile construction, Nålbinding (needle stitching), that can be traced back to the bronze and iron age. Nålbinding preceded knitting and crochet and is seen more recently in Scandinavian mittens, hats, stockings and milk strainers. Students will begin by making their own wooden needles from cherrywood (provided)  and proceed to learn the basic stitches of Nålbinding made by interlocking loops. Construction of a warm cowl or hand warmers will be just the beginning of endless possibilities with Nålbinding!

Students should bring:

  • One skein of bulky SINGLE-PLY yarn (100% wool) i.e. Lamb’s Pride Bulky 125yds, Noro Hitsuji 110 yds, Alafoss Lopi 109 yds
