Intro to Prehistoric Textiles
Introduction to Prehistoric Textiles:
Thursday 1st August 2024 10.00am - 4.00pm

Starting by exploring the evidence for prehistoric textiles and discussing the challenges of reconstructing techniques where so much of the original material has not survived. We will then use this inspiration to help us explore different types of cordage in flax and lime bast, splicing vs spinning, looped and twined textiles, and perhaps braiding, netting or sprang according to group interests. 

You will also make an antler needle (from naturally shed antler) using flint tools to take home.

All materials supplied.

This workshop is led by historical crafts person, heritage educator and archaeologist, Sally Pointer. br>
About the tutor: Sally is an experimental archaeologist and teacher of heritage crafts working with natural materials and techniques that can be traced back thousands of years. Your course will combine a detailed look at the archaeological evidence as well as a solid grounding in practical techniques, with plenty of scope to adapt the projects to suit your own interests as we go along.

Please arrive at the Creswell Crags car park by 9.45 at the latest.

Please note, this workshop is for ages 16+ and is not suitable for children.
