Using cording, braiding, knotting and linking techniques inspired by Aimee’s work, you will take away at least one braided necklace, bracelet or keyring from the session and you can apply your new skills to create wearable adornments and accessories at home.

Aimee’s work, which brings the traditions of embroidery to the forefront of contemporary design, is being exhibited as part of Make it Slow. In an exciting collaboration last year, she worked with DAKs on the design and production of hand-embroidered garments for their Spring/Summer 2013 Womenswear Collection which were shown on the runway at London Fashion Week.
