Whether you’re gearing up to fight on the battlefield or having a night on the town, chainmail has provided a durable medium for adornment and protection for over a millennia. In this maker experience, you’ll gain an introduction to the most widely used chainmail pattern (4-in-1) and learn the first steps to making box-chain bracelets and coasters.
You will use hand tools to make either your own bracelet or coaster to take home. Material and tools provided. All you have to do is bring yourself, your curiosity, and a friend!
