Course Overview

Dive into pewter thread braiding with exciting techniques that open windows to all sorts of artistic possibilities. Explore a variety of braiding techniques incorporating leather strips, beads, and silk cord! Create braids for up to four single braid bracelets or two wider bracelets with multiple braids. Students are encouraged to have multiple projects started during class but are not required to have them completed by the end of class. The process is the point, so enjoy the creative freedom of exploring several applications using pewter thread in conjunction with a smattering of materials. Have a material you’d like to experiment with? Bring it to class! Additional materials will be available for sale. Materials fees (approximately $150) will be collected by the instructor at the conclusion of class. Please note the materials fee does not include the purchase of clamps, scissors, and other hand tools. These will be available for use during class, however. This course is open to students ages 13+ if accompanied by an adult.

Ability Notes  

All levels of proficiency are welcome. Please be advised that good hand strength, eyesight (I recommend the addition of magnifier glasses) and the ability to sit for several hours is required. A knowledge of sewing is not required but we will be using a variety of needles for sewing finished braids to leather.

Required Tools

  • Notebook
  • Pencil or pen
  • Cash, check or credit card to pay materials fee to instructor 

Optional Tools

  • Reading or magnifying eyeglasses
  • Favorite pair of scissors
