In this workshop, Tori will introduce you to the amazing world of Chainmaille. Over the course of eight hours, you 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.
Participants will produce two relatively easy bracelets from pre-made jump rings. The first project will help everyone get comfortable handling tools and opening and closing jump rings without leaving marks or gaps. The second project will introduce you to the wonderful opportunities of the traditional European 4 in 1 flat-weave.
Tori will also have Sterling silver jump rings available for purchse, if you want to weave in silver.
Join us for a fun-filled day, and begin your journey into the fascinating realm of Chainmaille jewelry!
