Leather & Chain Weaves Registration




Be prepared to start 2 or 3 patterns in class. We will practice different weave options and review closure options.

Depending on the weave, you will need 2″ to 3″ of leather per inch of chain pattern. Depending on the weave, 1mm or 1.5mm will work best. Two thicknesses of your leather must fit easily in a link of the chain.

A heavy duty or Tungsten cutter will be need for cutting the chain. 2 flatnose pliers or chainnose pliers for opening links.

Many leather colors and other styles of chain are available in store for purchase prior to class.
