Once used as a type of flexible armor made of interlocking metal rings, chainmaille has an extended history across the ages and around the world. Even today, it is being re-invented in a variety of ways, from protecting against shark bites to elaborate jewelry.
In this class, instructor Corey Green will explain historical chainmaille and its uses. You will learn techniques using the provided tools and materials to fashion “weaves,” as they are called, for different patterns. Go home with a finished piece of chainmaille jewelry and an understanding of the history of this art form. Advance registration recommended.
