Event description

Description


Semira of Interlinked Jewelry will be holding a pair of one and a half to two hour workshops at Fan Expo Dallas. Each day will have different classes. Saturday will be focusing on chainmaille fabric, clothing style patterns, and jewelry. Sunday focuses on scalemaille fabric and jewelry.

Each class will start with an introductory understanding of materials and going over the patterns you will be learning, how to properly open and close rings, followed by learning how to make the patterns themselves. Semira will work hands-on with each student, helping you to learn the best methods for you.


Location and Time:

The workshops' locations in the convention space and timeslot will be released soon! The schedule is still being worked out.


Saturday's Class: Chainmaille

Saturday will focus largely on the European and Persian families of chainmaille. You will learn how to make the ever popular European 4-1, how to use Persian 3-1 for edges and connecting of 2 pieces of European 4-1 sheet, as well as other patterns and neat tricks to incorporate them into cosplay.



Sunday's Class: Scalemaille
Sunday will focus on scalemaille, discussing the pros and cons of certain materials, how to assemble, and cleaning up the edges. This class will focus on the top-down, bottom-up, and circular method for building scalemaille. This class comes with 1 oz of mixed colored scales.


What Comes With Your Ticket Price:
Each class costs $25, with this cost you will receive a set of starter pliers, a 1 oz bag of anodized aluminum, and a 1 oz bag of stainless steel as well as an email sent out after the convention including reference links to multiple tutorials, distributors, and other helpful information to start your journey. Semira will also have examples of other materials and patterns available to touch and play with while you are learning.


Want to Learn Something Specific?
