Workshop "Looping: from object to decoration"

40.000 years ago this age-old technique was used to make baskets, nets and clothing. Today, looping is back and totally on trend.

Looping is a simple technique using loops that result in a stretchy fabric around an object. A bottle or stone gets a unique look.

During this workshop, you will learn the looping technique and start to form your own fabric. You can create a piece of jewellery or a decorative object.

Prior experience is not necessary.
