Chainmaille - Half-Persian

£29 - 2½ hours

 

It's amazing what you can do with a few metal rings!  In this introduction to chainmaille weaving, you'll learn two new chains; Half-Persian 4-in-1, and Half-Persian 3-in-1.  You'll make a stunning bracelet with rings of plated wire, in a choice of gold, silver, rose gold and black antique (or any combination of colours).  Enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a cup of tea (or coffee!).

Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter. 

 

The workshop runs for approximately 2 - 2½ hours.  Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills!  All materials and refreshments are included in the price.

FAQs

Who is the class for?

Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome!  Suitable for complete beginners or those with more experience, it's a nice relaxed and friendly class.  This class does require a degree of manual dexterity in the fingers, as you'll be making jewellery with quite small findings.

What's involved?

Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will need and the basic techniques you will learn.  You’ll be able to choose the wire you would like to use for your final piece, and Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating your bracelet.

Please note that this class does require a degree of manual dexterity in the fingers, as you'll be making jewellery with quite small findings.  It can be quite fiddly.

What's included?

The price includes everything you need: all materials and use of any necessary tools, full instruction from Wendy, and tea and coffee.  You will get to take home the bracelet you've made.  You will be shown two styles of Half-Persian weave; 4-in-1 and 3-in-1.  They may sound the same, but they look much different!  Beginners will probably only make one bracelet in one technique, but if you're quick enough you may be able to make a second bracelet, one in each technique.

What are the design options?

When you arrive at your class, you will be given the choice of a few different colours of jump rings to use, all either gold or silver plated, in different finishes.  The design you will learn will remain the same, but the variation in colours you choose can make a difference to the finished look.  Wendy will show you all the techniques you need, to ensure that you make a bracelet to be proud of!

How long will the class last?

The class will last approximately two to two-and-a-half hours.  It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run.

Where is the class held?

Classes are held in The Little Craftery in Field Row, Worthing, which is designed to be a functional, comfortable workspace for up to 6 participants.  The shop will be closed to the public during your class, so you don’t need to worry about interruptions.  If you have any special access requirements, please contact Wendy at The Little Craftery before you book to discuss, and to find out if access is available for you.

Do I need to bring anything?

All your materials and refreshments are supplied. 

It is quite fine work, so if you use reading glasses or similar it may be useful to bring those with you.

Do we need to book?

Yes, please do book in advance, as there are a limited number of places on each class (a maximum of 5 people per open class), and we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed!  We require full payment in advance in order to secure your booking.  Online payments will be taken securely by either Square or Paypal (don’t worry, you don’t have to have a Paypal account!).  If you’d rather not book online, you can book in person at The Little Craftery.

How do I book?

You can book on this page; just go to the 'Book Here' section above, and you'll see there are two options.

Option 1 is to check for classes already open; these are the dates that other people have already set, and are happy for you to join them.  If there are no dates that you can do there, then come back to this page and go to option 2.

Option 2 is where you can set up a new date.  Start by choosing how many people are in your group, and you'll be taken to a new calendar where you can choose any date and time you like.  You can also decide if you want it to be a private class, or if you'd like us to open it up for others to join you.

Why are there no dates available?

You haven't set one yet!  Instead of us trying to guess when you might want your class, it's easier if you tell us.

If you want an open class with other people, you can choose your own date by going straight to 'Option 2' in the Book Here section above.  If it's just one or two people that you book for, we'll open that date up for others to book onto (unless you chose a private session).

Any bookings for 3 people or more will automatically be set as a private session.

How many people are needed for a class?

We need at least 2 people per class, unless you've chosen to pay the additional supplement fee for a one-on-one (single person) class.

If you've set a new date and no-one else books onto it, we'll unfortunately have to reschedule or cancel your class.  You'll be notified by email and text message 24 hours in advance, with options to either reschedule to a later date, or cancel for a full refund. 

The maximum number of people per class depends on the class, and how much space it takes to do it (for this class it's 7 people, though for open dates we tend to limit to 5).

Can I book a one-on-one session?

Of course!  For private sessions of just one person, we charge a supplement fee (which is 80% of the cost of the class, rounded to the nearest £1).  Private sessions of two or more people have no additional charge, so it might be worthwhile bringing a friend!

What's the cancellation policy?

If you are unable to attend your class, please let us know as soon as possible. 

If you cancel more than 7 days in advance of the class - You'll be eligible for a full refund or a reschedule, as you prefer.

If you cancel within 7 days of the class (up to 24 hours before the class) - you're not eligible for a refund, but you can reschedule.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the class - you're not eligible for a refund or a reschedule.

Failure to show up for your class will not be eligible for a refund or reschedule.

In any circumstance where a class is cancelled by The Little Craftery, we will attempt to contact you in advance as soon as possible to either reschedule or offer a full refund, as you prefer.
