Nancy gave a very interesting talk about how the silk hankies were made and I’m sure the ladies went away with a different point of view about the silk worm.

Many methods were demonstrated by Nancy on how to use this very versatile little piece of silk.  They also learned the trick (to stop them sticky to every part of your hand) was to iron them.

Many different variations of scarves and wraps were achieved over the 2 day workshop. Some completely covered their silk with hankies whilst others chose to leave some silk exposed, giving a totally different result.
