They plaited their belts with Owen

Owen Hartshorn's plaited belt class went off a treat with some very satisfied customers leaving the classroom with new plaiting skills and a pretty spiffy looking belt!

Once the weave and the tension was worked out, the class were plaiting in no time and getting into the rythym of working with 12 strands.

Owen took them through the process of how to start the plait, what to look for in the lace, how to anchor the belt, how to lubricate the strands if need be and create their weave.  Also how to flatten the plait and reverse the strands to turn them over to create the fold back of the buckle end.  All in all, a rewarding workshop.
