Viking knit is an ancient form of circular wire weaving also known as the trichinopoly chain, originally made from melted down coins turned into fine wire.  Archeologists found examples of this type of chain at various sites in Scandinavia dating from the Seventh Century AD, which is the Viking Era. 

In this session you will learn how to form a chain with a length of successively looped wire, to form a long tube which is then stretched and decorated to create a bracelet.

These are the topics covered:

  • Tools and materials.
  • Single stitch viking knit.
  • Incorporating decorative bead elements.
  • Finishing techniques.
This class is suitable for beginners.

The price includes materials and use of the tools.

There will be an hour for lunch. Lunch is not provided. You are welcome to bring your own or visit one of the cafes or takeaways in Beer.
