I will teach you to make chainmaille jewelry starting from the basics by making your own maille bracelet. I will start off by teaching you how to weave the most basic chainmaille that most everyone thinks of when they think of maille: The European 4-in-1. If you prefer to learn a specific weave or already know the 4-in-1, message me and I will tailor the lesson to suite your skills and tastes. Please let me know which weave you would like to learn:
Depending on how quickly you pick up the skill, you should leave the class with a completed bracelet. If you're a bit slower, fear not! I will send you home with the materials to complete your bracelet.
Chainmaille can be as delicate or burly as you like, depending on the materials you use. I will be teaching you using annodized alluminum, a hardened alluminum that is hypo-allergenic, light weight, and will not rust or stain your skin.
