Natural Twine (cordage) Making with Stuart Ballard

Natural Twine (cordage) Making with Stuart Ballard
Adult Eco-workshop

Natural twine or cordage making was a technological turning point in our prehistoric development. In one step we suddenly had string for bows, thread for stitching garments, line for making nets and then into bigger ropes. Join Stuart Ballard in this eco-workshop that will teach you how to select natural materials for cord and how to turn natural plan materials into usable objects. During this workshop you will try out different materials and the methods for making twine and create your own eco-necklace or bracelet adorned with a birch pendant using the techniques you have learnt. Perfect for jewellery and textile makers who want to move towards eco-friendly materials and away from plastic based cords.

All instruction and materials provided.
