Gallery Vertigo is hosting a youth jewelry making class next week.
Open to youth 12 to 19 (boys and girls), students will learn how to create a chainmaille bracelet from more than 200 individual rings.
“We will walk the participants through the proper technique of opening and closing rings, as well as how to assemble the rings into a finished bracelet that participants can take home and keep at the end of class,” said instructor Donna Mair.
“I’m very excited about sharing the joys of chainmaille. Being able to make a wearable item in a few short hours is pretty exciting,”
The class runs Tuesday, Aug. 18 and requires a minimum of five students to take place. Preregistration is required, with a $25 drop-in fee due upon attending. All supplies will be provided, including rings, clasps, and pliers for each participant.
Registration can be done via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (please leave a message at 250-503-2297) or contact the gallery on its Facebook page.
