We use and rely on textiles all the time in the modern world, and its produced rapidly on an industrial scale. But how did people make textiles in the distant past?
Explore the techniques and forms of early textiles as you learn to make fine cordage from flax, hemp and nettle fibers on our prehistoric textiles workshop with Sally Pointer.
You'll carve an antler needle to use with your cordage to try braiding, netmaking and sprang. There will be time to try each skill before deciding which to focus on to make a belt or small bag.
