In the afternoon session students will learn pearl knotting using glass pearls supplied in the kit which accompanies the course. For the afternoon activities, students are welcome to bring in their own pearl knotting projects to work on, with guidance from the tutor. If choosing to knot their own project students must bring correct size silk thread to accompany their own pearls/beads.
