Nordic Craft Workshop: Viking Posament Bracelet with Liz Bucheit

Friday, June 7, 2019 - 5:00pm

This workshop meets over 2 days: Friday, June 7, from 5-7 p.m. and Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Learn how to make elegant posament bracelets, which have been found in Viking burial sites, by braiding pewter thread and sewing it to a soft leather strip. “Posament” refers to knotting and braiding wire into ornaments used to decorate textiles. Begin by practicing the art by using nylon cords to create either a “Josephine” or triangular series of braided knots. Then construct a length of knots with coiled pewter thread and sew the finished braid to a softened leather strip to fashion a bracelet. A pewter button provides the finishing touch.

An additional $95 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
