Handiscola
Handiscola was an EU project that brought together participants from European countries to learn and increase appreciation for traditional handicrafts.

Ribbon Plaiting

Naalbinding
The downloadable .pdf file includes instructions for making mittens, a hat, a scarf, socks and a pouch for your mobile phone. And even has instructions for making a bone needle from a leg of an animal.

Felting
Instructions are given for making a bag, a ball and flat felt work.

Embroidery
Instructions for basic embroidery stitches and some lovely floral motifs.

Rug Weaving
History and details for how to weave a wool rya rug. Some of the other Handiscola projects included:

Ceramics

Bookbinding

One Log Boat

Wood Carving

The above .pdf documents are translated into several languages (English, Estonian, Greek, Hungarian and Latvian). I suggest that you browse through the complete documents before printing as good photos and images are scattered throughout the pages. Then print out just the pages that you need in your language.

The above links don’t seem to be active any more – so I have included copies of the pdf files here:
