This week at bookbinding class we learned how to do the Italian Renaissance headband (also explained in Jane Greenfields book: headbands, how to work them).
The beginning was pretty complicated, especially with the thick woolly threads supplied by the teacher. But as soon as I got home I made myself a new primary headband on a random old pocketbook and tried again. This time with pretty bright coloured Cordonnet thread.
Later this week I’ll try do make a normal Renaissance headband and maybe a Monastic headband. Pictures will of course follow!
