Handmade, as mentioned in previous posts, took place this weekend. It had taken me a lot of time to get ready for the weekend but it was all worth it in the end.
Everything at Handmade centred around a central Handmade Hub that included the Handmade Store, a Felt Exhibition (from 16 of their artisans), a Brother sewing machines display, a coffee shop and a couple of areas where people could sit and complete their creations.
My Byzantine chainmaille classes were held in the afternoons with the Saturday class being completely full and the Sunday class just one short of being full. Not having taught chainmaille to so many at once before I had underestimated the time it would take and in the end only one student managed to complete her bracelet in the class time. Fortunately though all students had decent lengths of chain going by the end of the class and had mastered the weave.
Looking forward now to another great Handmade weekend next year!
