Stringing, threading and knotting

TrainingEmily Kidson

Yesterday I did a one day course at Morley College on stringing, threading and knotting. I could have sat down with a book and worked out how to thread beads or pearls correctly - but sometimes it is easier to be shown! The course was taught by Amina Kaufmann who is a professional stringer. We all made a bracelet with a double knot between each bead and then worked on our own projects: 1-bead-course

A lovely way to spend a saturday! Watch this space for some new necklace designs :-)
