Hi there, and welcome to the Viking Knit Bracelet Class.
This ancient weave has been documented as early as the mid- 8th century and is still used widely today because of its coiled grace.

Today we'll be weaving our own Viking knit bracelets that are sure to impress your family and friends, so come join me at Gilded Poppy Makery for a fun day exploring the ancient craft of Viking Knit.

We are working in Copper, but Sterling Silver is available if you prefer, at an additional cost on the day. Please let me know  at least 4 days in advance, so I can order the silver if necessary.



BEGINNER CLASS: No experience necessary. I will teach you everything you need to know to complete this project on the day.

What you will learn

  • This is a great intro to working with wire! We'll get comfy with the tools we'll be using, and get a feel for how to work with the wire, so you're not fighting each other all the way through the project!

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10am to 5:30pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have morning tea ready for you when you get here. Coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.

What to bring

  • Just yourself! A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.

What to wear

This is a no-fire day at the Makery, so anything you’d be comfy in for the day is fine. A suggestion though would be to avoid tailing sleeves that can get caught up in the work, and to keep rings and bracelets to snag-free pieces.

Appropriate for

This is an open beginner class, available to those from years 16 and up.

Welcome to the home of Gilded Poppy Makery, a fun, relaxing place to learn the art of Silversmithing.
Here you will meet new friends as you take raw materials and turn them into beautiful pieces of jewellery that will thoroughly impress your friends and family.

Small, intimate classes of no more than five people ensure plenty of one-on-one time with Storm as you put your new skills to the test creating a wide range of projects including rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets and pendants.

The various classes will cover techniques such as Soldering, Pierce-work, Filing and Finishing, Stone Setting, Fold-forming, Etching, Enamelling, Metal Clay, Kumihimo Cord Making, Viking knit, Wire Wrapping, Bone Carving and so much more. It's fair to say that there is something for everyone, and you won't be bored any time soon!

Book into your class today and bring a friend or two. With a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 people, these classes are perfect way to escape from the daily rat-race for yourself, or as a crafty get-together with friends.

Gilded Poppy Makery is a warm, inclusive place where learning is fun and mistakes are celebrated as 'Design Features' (we have a sticker with that very thing on it!). Bring your curiosity and a sense of humour and join us at the workbench.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all,

Thank you Storm for such an enjoyable and informative class. The resulting necklace exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be looking for a future class to attend and expand my jewelry making skills.
