Description
"During the construction of my sweet bag I learned various techniques to construct a variety of trimmings for the bag. This hands on class will teach you to construct your own gold gimp thread. Create a simple knot from gimp thread. This knot will lead us into the class of knots known as turks head. Finally, we'll end with a finger loop braid known as the Grene Dorge or French string.

Anyone is welcome to audit the class"
