Meet your instructors:
Cathy Dyck has been an avid Viking-age enthusiast since 2012 and has developed a love of the ancient fibre craft, Naalbinding. Cathy makes authentic socks, mitts, hats and other gear for friends and the Sons of Lugh Viking reenactors.
Jessica Bernert is a string fanatic and has yet to find a fibre-craft that does not call to her. In addition to using naalbinding to create historical Viking garments, Jessica incorporates naalbound toes & heals into knit socks taking advantage of the non-ravelling nature of naalbinding.
