Viking Wire Weaving

May 31 @ 6:00 pm - June 7 @ 8:00 pm

Learn to weave your own Viking Chain and leave with a completed necklace, bracelet, or anklet!

*This is a TWO-SESSION workshop: May 31st, 6-8 pm, and June 7th, 6-8 pm. You must be there both days!*

Learn to weave your own Viking Chain and leave with a completed necklace, bracelet, or anklet! While this may look like a complicated project, it’s merely a matter of looping around a dowel rod and then stretching it out; if you’re not sure what that means, then come find out!

Linore will guide everyone through the process of starting their weaving during the first session. Students will have a week to make their weaving longer, and then will finish weaving and complete their necklace, bracelet, or anklet during the second session.

Students will also receive an instructional packet in case they fall in love with the process and want to continue on their own!

Age 12+ (under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult).

There are two ticket prices: one for using copper, and one for using sterling silver. All materials and tools are included in the ticket price.

Shown below:

Viking Wire Weaving using sterling silver–we will not be using beads in this workshop, although we will talk about how they can be used in the future! This is a more advanced technique, and is tricky for beginners.

If you have taken this workshop before, however, you may try using beads!

Local artist Linore Huss has always been adventurous and creative. From general arts and folk dance to fiber and jewelry to ceramics and metalsmithing, Linore loves to explore new mediums, and the world around her is always an opportunity to find new shapes and textures. She encourages her students to show creativity in every process, and loves when they teach her something new as they come in with open eyes and minds.

Linore graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Ceramics in 2018 and has since spent time as the Head of Metals and Glass at Camp Matoaka in Maine, Metals Studio Assistant at Arrowmont, and a ceramics and jewelry teacher for kids and adults in the Tri-Cities area.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
