Learn how to make chain-link bracelets! What is great about this class is that it requires minimal tools and can be done in the comfort of your own home. When most people think of chainmaille, they think of the armor that soldiers wore in Medieval Times; however, chainmaille jewelry is trending and has its hold in today’s society.

Tailored for youth ages 10-17, students will learn the Byzantine Weave and create a bracelet that is unique to their style by selecting from multiple color options. Your instructor may or may not nerd out and teach you some Old English while weaving. 

We will cover: 

  • Studio safety and ergonomics
  • Jump hoops and sizing
  • Different pliers and their uses
  • Byzantine Weave

Class Duration: 4 hours with a short break for lunch on Saturday, March 9th from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. 

    Prerequisite: None
