Get to grips with making cordage from stinging nettles, flax and hemp that is fine enough to sew with or heavy enough for taking on adventures with you. We'll also carve a personal needle from bone, antler or boxwood using flint tools, and will have time to explore some practical uses for your new skill. Price includes generous hank of prepared fibre to take home to practice on.
This workshop is led by historical crafts people and experimental archaeologists Sally Pointer and Gareth Risborough.
