Ideas for a Class

Hello! I'll be doing a workshop for an anime con and I'm stuck on what to teach. I taught Helms Chain on my last one and it worked out, but I don't want to do the same weave because many of the people who attended my last workshop will be at this one.
I'm thinking a unit. Something really simple so that others do not get discouraged.

Any ideas?

Mobius Flower? Byzantine?

I thought about a flower chain. I could easily teach a byzantine as well Smile I just have to make sure I can do it within the time limit I am given.

I would stick to fairly basic weaves. As mentioned, Byzantine or Mobius are good ones. Box chain too would be a good one.

I would love to do a class. Do you provide rings and pliers too, or have people bring their own?

I agree as well, I just need to make sure I can keep it in the time limit. I provide everything, they keep what they made but I get the pliers back for other classes I do. I think classes are a fun thing to do, but make sure you have a hand for a larger one otherwise it can be a bit overwhelming.

What is the time limit?


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

Some nice units that are pretty but not too hard:
Acute Mandala, or B^3, Aura or Inverted Aura, Oriental Scale or Inverted Oriental Scale, Tao 3 or Not Tao 3.

I think I'm given an hour, I'm not sure yet. It could be anywhere between 30 min to an hour and usually have 20 people. So I do have to keep it simple. Thanks so much for the ideas guys Very Happy
