Chainmaille Jewelry Workshops (Ages 12 & Up)

The process of creating chainmaille involves using two pairs

of pliers (one in each hand), wielding them like a crab, and

opening and closing split rings to create intricate patterns.

The process is simple and addictive, although people with

arthritis or other hand sensitivities may have difficulty.

During these workshops, we will utilize anodized aluminum

jump rings, a material that is lightweight, easy to work with,

durable, waterproof and cleans up with soap and water. It

also comes in a rainbow of 25 colors – you will be able to

select your own custom mix of colors to create your pieces.

Take one workshop or take them all!
