Nålbind the Coppergate Sock
In 1972, construction workers in York, England were digging a ditch and found an entire 1000-year-old Viking village.
(Well, there's a little more to it than that, but you get the idea.) One of the thousands of artifacts unearthed
was a nålbound sock, now referred to as the Coppergate sock.
Its state of preservation is a testament to the strength of good wool and a solid needleworking skills.
Renata Fossett will teach you how to make this historic sock as well as giving you historical context and background on Viking life. Renata is Viking re-enactor with many years of Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) experience and a teacher who makes the intricate looping of the York stitch easy to understand. $45
Materials needed: 3 skeins of Álafosslopi, nålbindning needle
Saturdays, May 16, 23, 30, and June 6 10 to 11:30
