Rhino Weaves Part 2: Screw Chain Bracelet

The afternoon session is designed for intermediate level weavers. Students will learn how to construct Screw Chain weave by completing a bracelet in sterling silver. Other weaves discussed in this session will be Prejudiced Rhinos, Prejudiced Rhinos Everywhere and Prejudiced Rhino Sheet. Each of these weaves is based on Bias European 4-in-1 weave structure. An understanding of Bias European 4-in-1 will be helpful but is not necessary for enrollment. It is assumed that students who enroll are proficient weavers, know the difference between Through-the-Eye and Around-the-Eye connections, and understand gauge, inner/outer diameter and aspect ratio.
