Some of the most fascinating objects demonstrating medieval man’s craftsmanship have come from Viking burials of the 9th and 10th centuries in Sweden. The term “posament” refers to a method of knotting and braiding wire into ornaments used to decorate textiles. In this class students will practice the art of posament using nylon cords to perfect either a “Josephine” or triangular series of braided knots. We will then construct a length of knots using pewter coiled thread (96% tin + 4% silver) and sew the finished braid to a softened leather strip to create a bracelet. A pewter button finishes off the bracelet.
