The Fifth International Conference on Braiding will be held in Svendborg, Denmark in August 14-20, 2022.
We hope you can join us at the next Braids conference! It is planned for August 14-20, 2022. We have found a lovely venue in Svendborg on the south coast of the island of Funen. Getting there from the International airport near Copenhagen is an easy 2.5 hour train journey and the entire group will be able to stay together in a lovely setting for both accommodation, meals and workshops. We are aware that international travel is expensive and it is our priority to make this affordable. As yet we do not know if and how this past year's Covid 19 experience will impact our conference but we are working with responsible partners, planning for every recommended precaution and, when not braiding, crossing our fingers that everyone will feel comfortable.
We want to highlight Nordic braid techniques such as tablet weaving, loop manipulation, rigid heddle/inkle, braiding, fingerweaving, sprang, lace, whipcording, tatting, nalbinding, lucet and straw braiding and their counterparts in the rest of the world. There will also be workshops in kumihimo techniques (although we cannot provide large equipment), ply-split and others.
We are currently working on the programme which will be available in July 2021. Registration will begin in November 2021.
