Chainmaille

Sunday 8th April

Join Angel as she shares her passion for the ancient craft of weaving
maille.

Both Chainmail and Rubbermail are incredibly versatile and can be used to
make anything from intricate personalized jewelry pieces; household
accessories such as table cloths, lamp shades and chandeliers; to fetish
clothing, slave collars, whips, floggers, and toys to conduct electricity.

You could, in fact, create a whole play scene with tools and equipment
made with chainmail. When it comes to chainmail – your imagination is the
limit.

Learn about the tools; ring types; ring sizes & gauges; chainmail weaves
and their uses; chainmail care; and where to find good reference
materials.
