Before there was knitting, before crochet, there were many fascinating fiber crafts that our ancestors used for function and beauty. Although often left behind for more practical techniques, these fiber crafts still hold an important place in our culture and heritage and can create unique cloth that no modern technique can rival. Over eight weeks you will learn about three ancient fiber techniques and how to create a simple project in each.
See below for the crafts covered in this class.
All tools needed for the techniques will be provided.
