Join Daina for this 3 hr class learning Viking Knit (also known as Trichinolopoly Chain).
Trichinolopoly is the ancient art form of circular knitting. Although it is attributed to the Norse, examples of this knitting can be seen in many other ancient civilizations. These cultures used viking knit in jewelry as well as to adorn clothing and sacred vessels.
This workshop will teach you the basic Viking Knit technique. You will learn how to knit copper wire around a dowel to create a wild snake chain. BUT! Don't be afraid of THIS snake! You will tame it as you draw it through a drawplate. Once your snake is tamed, you will adorn it with beads creating a simple bracelet. After completing this workshop, you will be on your way to becoming a snake charmer!
Although some wire work experience is recommended, this basic Viking knit bracelet is a beginner level class anyone can do.
The class kit includes all the wire, beads and findings you will need to complete the bracelet. A dowel, drawplate and a few other optional tools will be provided to each student to use during the class.
Tools are available to use during the class. If you'd like to bring your own: flush cut pliers, 1 pair of chain nose or bail making pliers, 2 pair of chain nose, flat nose or bent nose pliers.
As we will be working with fine wire, please bring visual aids if you need them. (Glasses, magnifiers etc).
Class Fee: $45. (Includes supplies)
