In this workshop, instructor Tori Rushing will introduce students to the amazing world of Chainmaille. Over the course of eight hours, students will acquire many of the basic skills needed for Chainmaille assembly. We focus on learning which tools to use (including how to prepare and correctly use these tools) to properly manipulate jump rings, then will move on to weaving two fundamental Chainmaille patterns.
Students will produce two relatively easy bracelets from pre-made jump rings. The first project will help students get comfortable handling tools and opening and closing jump rings without leaving marks or gaps. The second project will introduce students to the wonderful opportunities of the traditional European 4 in 1 flat-weave.
Come and join us for a fun-filled day, and begin your journey into the fascinating realm of Chainmaille jewelry!
