Knotworking from Concept to Application in 6 Simple Steps

In 2018, after more than 20 years of creating leather armours, I launched the Black Raven Academy to provide experienced focus, direction and personal guidance for those who wished to learn the craft of leather armouring.

Once again, I’m proud to present the next step in the creative journey, with a completely NEW set of 23 Knotwork components used as part of the "Codex Knotwork Codebreaker" system allowing you to create even MORE designs to adorn your creations. 

EVEN MORE  knotwork designs Enabling You To Create Stunning Knotwork  In Hours – Not Days

After decades of adorning costumes, armours, and clothing, I developed a system that would reduce the time-consuming process of designing knotwork. Traditionally, knotworking is complex and time-consuming... taking days (or longer) to refine a design. Now two years on & having seen Students of the Master Codex Course create literally hundreds of their own creations... The Journey Continues..

Now, thanks to a NEW set of 23 exclusive interchangeable knotwork components, it's possible to create even MORE designs – and quickly!

Yet it's more than just a design. Quality knotworking is apparent the moment one lays eyes upon it.
