SCALEMAIL CREATIONS – LEARN TO “WEAVE SCALE”
Learn to weave scalemail and create your own hand guard/cuff with Angel Anne.
Scalemail was traditionally used in ancient times to create armour. We can now enjoy the look and feel of scales to create wearable pieces, versatile accessories, jewellery as well as spectacular creations.
In this class we will use rings to join scales together in a weave which is remarkably similar to the European 4 in 1. This weave was used to make the arm band in the chainmail class a few months ago. If you attended the chainmail class, you will find this assists in learning the weave for the scalemail class.
The piece we are making is an aluminium hand guard/cuff.
This design will teach you the techniques of joining scales together, finishing off the edges and creating different shaped pieces. You will be supplied with leather to fasten the hand guard to your wrist. There will also be additional rubber and aluminium rings in the kit to create a chainmail band to add to your hand guard.
In this class you will learn to weave scalemail and come out with a piece you’ve made yourself, PLUS the skills and inspiration to start creating.
If you already have your own pliers, scales and rings, please bring them along.
