November 16th @ Memphis Botanic Garden 10 am to 5 pm Chainmaille Ornaments
Create gorgeous ornaments using a variety of chainmaille techniques! You will practice several weaves and learn how to include more than just rings into your chain maille. You'll use scales to create ornaments such as poinsettias or ice flowers and add spikes to weaves to create snowflakes. There will be 4 different ornament projects completed in class.
You'll receive step by step instructions for each project and there will be additional kits available for purchase so you can make more of your favorites. These make wonderful package tie-ons as well as thoughtful co-worker and teacher gifts.
All materials are provided and tools will be available for use in class. If you have your own preferred smooth jawed pliers, you are welcome to bring those.
