Albuquerque Homeschool Forum / Classes and camps / Medieval Chainmail Class!!!
Posted by: 839 (Guest), March 9, 2010, 5:33pm
Medieval Living is sponsoring a class on making Medieval chainmail - we will meet at the Cherry Hills Library in the NE Heights on April 21 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Anyone interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This class is free to homeschool families!
The class will include a brief history of Medieval armor with some examples to touch, hold and try on! Students will learn the basics of making European 4-in-1 chainmail, along with an introduction to some of the other European as well as Japanese styles. Students will get to make a chainmail project to take with them. There is no age restriction - however, students need to be able to successfully use and manipulate pliers, so take that into consideration before signing up. We will also go over the design and creation of chainmail-inspired jewelry . . . definitely NOT Medieval, but the process for making the jewelry is the same as for making armor . . . just a little different application!
