Don’t miss artist Bryan Jones’s panel on the art of making chain mail in the art track Friday at 7:00 p.m. This is the third year Jones has presented this panel. For the last two years, “it’s been standing room only,” Jones said, recommending that hopeful mail smiths come early.
The panel will feature a hands-on workshop where participants can learn to weave chain mail. Jones, who has been working in chain mail for over seventeen years, has a table in the art show. “I have always been interested in the Middle Ages, especially the legends of knights and their ladies,” Jones explained. “My grandfather dubbed me `Sir Bryan’ because I watched so many movies about medieval knights as a kid.”
The panel will last until an hour and a half until 8:30 p.m. to accommodate the workshop.
