Melissa Rioux will teach Egyptian Spiral Chain Class at Woodlawn
Ellsworth – Melissa Rioux will teach an “Egyptian Spiral Chain Class” on Saturday, September 29 from 10:00am – 3:00pm at Woodlawn.
This chain making technique was practiced over 2 thousand years ago and can be used to make necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more. By using straight wire and pliers, links can be formed and then woven together to make endless creations that can be personalized. Students will learn how to make Egyptian spiral links and will go home with earrings or a bracelet made of copper or brass.
The cost is $85 for Woodlawn members and $95 for non-members and includes all materials. As space is limited, pre-registration is required through the calendar at woodlawnmuseum.org. There is a September 21 deadline to sign up to allow time to order the material.
