CourseGraphic This class focuses on teaching students how to create the Byzantine chain maille weave.  The Byzantine weave is a popular and versatile weave with lots of design potential.
Students will have the opportunity to learn the weave by completing a bracelet in anodized and bright aluminum.  Weave variations and design options will be demonstrated or discussed.  

Students are responsible for ordering a supply kit prior to class.  Kits will cost approximately $12 each and must be ordered by July 25, 2017.  Ordering information will be sent to each student upon enrollment.  A full color handout, detailing the steps required to complete the weave, will be distributed in class.

The class includes an introductory presentation covering basic chain maille concepts, techniques, and tools.  
Two pairs of smooth-jawed pliers are needed to make chain maille.  Pliers will be available for use in class.  Flat nose pliers are preferred by the instructor, but chain nose or bent chain nose pliers can also be used.  If you have a favorite pair, feel free to bring them to class.

This class is intended for beginning chain maille students with no prior chain maille experience.
