Beautifully intricate patterns can be woven with metal links, and this class will show you the basics to get started with chainmaille weaving. Using rings made with your choice of silver or gold-plated wire, you'll learn to make a gorgeous helmweave bracelet. Enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a cup of tea (and biscuits, of course!).
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.

Chainmaille - Helmweave Bracelet
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.
