Finger Braiding - Salford Museums Schools' Hub

We're really proud of our new website, especially for teachers and educators. It's a hub for finding out about our learning programme - with all the information you need about our sessions and Discovery Boxes as well as a range of free, online resources to use in your classroom or other setting.

We've picked out this one to share today - focusing on the ancient technique of finger braiding!

https://schools.salfordmuseum.com/resource/finger-braiding/

Braids like the one being made in the video were made by ‘silk women’ and were often used to decorate, or trim, the clothing of wealthy people like the lady in this portrait.
