Viking "Knit" Chain Bracelet
Come explore the ancient tradition of chain making! You’ll use “Viking Knitting,” a centuries-old looping technique, to create a beautiful silver bracelet with a variety of unusual clasps. Historically, this unique method of weaving resembles “nalbinding” knitting and was used to fabricate everything from sweaters to netting for catching fish! You’ll have the opportunity to complete a bracelet in a single day--no previous experience required--and all tools and materials will be provided. Add a charm for an additional charge or bring one of your own! Materials fees will be collected by the instructor at the conclusion of class.
