About the Event

I  am unsure if this technique actually dates back to the vikings or not.    I know they used wire that they twisted together to form cuffs and  torques but whether they created this actual weave or knit I have been unable to find out. There was a "Trichinopoly Chain" found in an 9th  century hoard in Scoltand but the weave is different.    I do know that  it is a great skill to have and the pieces made using this skill have an  ancient and artisan feel to them.  

Viking Knit or Weave  is a simple technique that produces a highly intricate "chain" I have  put that in inverted commas because it does not feel like a chain more  like a cord or braid.  Suddenly wire has become a textile and I Love it.   

You will be taught how to use a simple acrylic rod and  draw-plate to produce stunning results.   The final piece will be a  necklace or bracelet (depends how quick you weave) with animal terminals a real viking show piece. 

The class can be taken using copper cost €65 if you wish to use silver please let me know at time of booking and extra charge of €70 (total €135) will apply.  This must be booked at least 14 days prior to the class so I can source the materials.
