Description
Found in Birka (Gotland late 700--late 900) are the Birka knots and Stag. Made of very fine wire twisted together again and again, they are surprisingly sturdy items. This class provides diagrams and construction advice for recreating these nifty bits of history. Patience and some hand skill are all that are needed.
