Stick weaving and braiding

Fieldhead Campus, Fieldhead Hospital, Ouchthorpe Lane, Wakefield, WF1 3SP

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Stick weaving is a very simple form of weaving and is an age-old tradition traced back 100’s of years ago . It’s one of the oldest known crafts worldwide!

In this introductory fun and friendly workshop, you will learn at your own pace how to weave a colourful headband, wristband, or hair scrunchie using wool or thread, 2 small sticks and some glitzy beads.

It’s a simple and fun way to create special gifts for anyone, costs very little to make at home and you can use up old pieces of wool or yarn you may have lying around. (Please note, this session is completely free to attend.)
