Naalbinding is an ancient technique of creating a fabric with just one needle and some yarn. In some form or other, it has been used across the world and across time, from the ancient Levant to Coptic Egypt, from prehistoric western China to Medieval Scandinavia, from prehistoric Peru to northern Canada of the 19th century, plus living traditions scattered just as widely. It is portable, requires only a needle, and it has been used to make everything from bags to clothing to decorative edgings. In this workshop we will get started learning naalbinding by making a simple wrist cuff in Oslo stitch, one of the family of Northern European traditional stitches.
