Learn to Weave like a Viking! Create Viking Woven Bracelets or Necklaces

Lots of opportunity for improvising and creating marvelous chains for bracelets and/or hanging pendants.

Prerequisites: All you need is a desire to learn!

Things to bring: Eagerness to learn a new technique of weaving with wire rather than fiber. Interest in improvising to create work of art.
