Japanese Chainmaille Fidget Balls

October 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $35.00 +Kit fee: $10, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: This intriguing object can be an ornament or a stress-relieving fidget toy. The chainmaille rings capture a glass marble in the centre. If you have taken my Japanese Ball pendant class you may recognize this as a (much) larger variation of the same design.

We will use aluminum jump rings in your choice of colors. The kit contains materials to make two balls, and you will complete at least one during the class. Note: a kit is required for this class; see details below.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: N/A. We will be using heavy-gauge aluminum rings so some hand strength is required.

Technique: Chainmaille

Bring to class: If you have your own pair of flat nosed pliers please bring them, but tools will also be available in class.
