Viking “Knit” Chain Bracelet

Come explore the ancient tradition of chain making! You’ll use “Viking Knitting,” a centuries-old looping technique, to create a beautiful silver bracelet with a variety of unusual clasps.

Historically, this unique method of weaving resembles “nalbinding” knitting and was used to fabricate everything from sweaters to netting for catching fish! You’ll have the opportunity to complete a bracelet in a single day – no previous experience required – and all tools and materials will be provided. Add a charm for an additional charge or bring one of your own!
We teach classes at a variety of locations so please see our calendar below.  We also teach classes in our spacious Lanesboro jewelry studio. Our Lanesboro offerings provide all tools and materials PLUS a delicious lunch in our spacious studio prepared by Chef Bret of the Lanesboro Pastry Shoppe.
