All materials are included in tuition. The history of chain making goes back to the beginning of adornment.  Many countries/cultures have a version of ‘chain’ that accompanied their adornment heritage.  Since the onset of the machine age, chain making has slipped aside as an art form. There are many chains established historically that are not difficult to make and are fun to learn. Handmade chains, for your one of a kind or small production pieces, will add a detail not accomplished by most purchased machine made chains. In this comprehensive class you will be introduced to chain maille, orbit chain, classic loop in loop, Egyptian links, Byzantine and woven chain (Viking knit). Each student will be encourage to make samplings of the chains introduced for future production and will be encouraged toward designs of their own.
