Learn to work basic Latvian braids and try multiple variations using the technique.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
In this workshop, you’ll learn to create Latvian braids—distinctive twisted bands of stitches—and multiple variations: braids with long floats, clumps of braids, multiple-color braids, and dense layers of braids. You’ll leave the workshop with a host of techniques and inspiration for braiding!
