Learning to make square knot bracelets.
We are working our way through a variety of crafts and the other week we made square knot bracelets or shambala bracelets.
I made one years ago at a workshop and then noticed last year that some of the major fashion retailers were producing similar bracelets and before you know it a workshop was developed.
I really enjoy leading this type of workshop where people learn to make something that they would have considered buying in a shop. I think it really helps people to see the value in making something for yourself and that you can create something beautiful easily.
Oh, beware. that sounds like I may start on my jolly old anti capitalist rant there so will stop myself before I get started and leave that for another day.
I bet you cant wait.
A good one here using a thick cord.
This one uses pretty beads.
or this one uses the content of a tool box to good effect.
lots of tutorials on video tutorials as well if you prefer to watch how to do it.
