Chainmail jewelry and armor lessons

40


40 per hour - Virtual OK

I will teach you the basics of chainmail jewelery and armor making - where to get materials, how to make your own, the basic knots, a few intermediate knots, etc. I can even walk you through a few small projects step-by-step, teaching you the skills to work your way towards larger pieces.

Chainmail is one of those skills that's incredibly difficult to learn from a non-video source. Anything with pictures helps, online videos help as well, but the best way to learn and teach it is interactively. While this is best in person, I offer the next-best solution- video chat tutoring. I'll work with you to teach and build.

Each session can be up to one hour. If you find you really enjoy the lessons and projects, I will make a lesson plan to help you achieve your goals.

Training & Qualifications


My father is a big history buff and taught me how to make chainmail armor when I was a teen. Ever since it's been difficult to stop. I've been teaching others and making my own stuff for over 10 years now.

Props research and design

About Tori Ames

My name is Tori. I have a BA in theatrical studies focusing on properties design and carpentry. I've designed and built props professionally on and off for five years. I'm not in a place to have my ow...n shop to build things these days, but I still love the research and design and I really enjoy helping people make awesome things. The coolest prop I've ever made was a set of giant monster hands. They were black and orange and extended from the forearm of the wearer about three feet out. Each hand had seven long, pointed, fully jointed fingers that made a wonderfully creepy sound when dragged along any surface. My second coolest prop was a set of bright pink and glittery tommy guns. Outside of props and carpentry, I have a particular talent for making chainmail jewelery and small armor pieces. I can teach you how to make your own, give you lots of resources to help you, and even assist you in designing your own piece. My parents have always been history buffs and been into historical medieval reenactments- making their own props and costumes, and in my dad's case this also meant armor and weapons. He first taught me how to make chainmail when I was 14, and since then it's been hard to quit. When I was 16 I hosted my first chainmail class, where I taught a group of peers how to make their own rings and two beginners knots. I also love to read and write - poetry, fiction narratives, non fiction articles and studies, the works. I'm happy to write for you, proof read, or just give you some critical constructive advice. That's me in a nutshell. If you have any questions, just ask! show more
