Led by Braid Specialist Roderick Owen from Oxford, England, the braids you will learn how to make in this workshop are unique! They are the obliquely interlaced structures that were made by the Paracas and Nazca cultures dating back to 600-200BC. No other culture has produced braided like these.
Workshop requires minimum equipment and materials — braiding board/cushion made from corrugated cardboard (instructions provided), knitting needles, and high twist worsted swollen or acrylic yarn. Register early; class size is limited.
