What happens in this class?

Suitable for Beginners. Viking Weave gives a result similar to French-Knitting but is woven by hand around a rod former. This means that you can use much thicker wire giving a very sturdy, sinuous tubular chain - no viking helmets required!

Had an amazing time in this workshop.
