CHAINMAIL CREATIONS – LEARN TO “WEAVE MAILLE”
In this class, Angel will share her passion for the ancient craft of weaving maille.
Both Chainmail and Rubbermail are incredibly versatile and can be used to make anything from intricate personalized jewelry pieces; household accessories such as table cloths, lamp shades and chandeliers; to fetish clothing, slave collars, whips and floggers. You could, in fact, create a whole BDSM scene with tools and equipment made with chainmail.
When it comes to chainmail – your imagination is the limit. Learn about the tools; ring types; ring sizes & gauges; chainmail weaves and their uses; aspect ratios and how they affect your weaves; chainmail care; and where to find good reference material: books, fetlife groups, & websites.
In this class you will learn to weave an arm-band in European 4-in-1 rubber-mail and come out with a piece you’ve made yourself, PLUS the skills and inspiration to start creating.
If you have your own rings and pliers, please bring them along, otherwise, kits will be available for $20 containing everything you need to create a rubber-mail arm band. It will contain rubber rings, silver aluminium rings and coloured aluminium rings. If you would like a particular colour, please request in advance.
In order to provide personal attention to you while learning this craft the class size is strictly limited.
