In this intensive workshop designed for experienced metal artists, we will demystify the process of making handwoven chains, as students make tools and learn skills that are unique to this technique. Students will learn to make several different patterns of handwoven chains, then choose a favorite pattern to make into a bracelet or necklace.

There will be frequent demos, and students will learn the importance of wire gauge  & dowel diameter ratios, precise, reliable fusing of fine silver wire, accurate link shaping, weaving the links accurately, and making and using a specially designed draw plate.

Students will go home with several sample chains with documentation tags with the dowel diameter and wire gauge ratios, their handmade tools unique to this art form, and thier finished piece of jewelry..

Please wear long pants and closed toe shoes for work in the jewelry shop, and please finish all food and drinks before class. Also be prepared to pull your hair back—safety first!
