Instructor: Katherine Buenger

Using tin thread, a fine wire made of pewter and 4% silver that is wrapped around a fiber core, you will learn three very different looking braids. A four-strand round braid, a simple 6 strand braid, and a lovely 7 strand braid with a twist running down the center of it. Braids will be finished with a glue-in silver-plated magnetic clasp.
