Introduction to Metal Clay (16 and up)

Kelly Green Grady $125 plus $55 material fee (payable in cash to the instructor the day of the workshop)

Metal Clay is an exciting medium that begins as a suspension of tiny particles of silver in an organic clay binder. Metal clay can be shaped and layered, or textured by hand or with molds.  It is as malleable as ordinary modeling clay. After drying and sanding, the clay is fired.  During firing, the binder burns off, leaving pure metal (fine silver). Once fired, it can be polished or patinas may be added. Learn to make fine silver jewelry using metal clay (PMC brand). . . . Students will leave class with one or more finished pieces depending on the complexity of the pieces they create. The materials fee includes 15 gram package of PMC fine silver clay, (2) sterling silver earring findings and (3) sterling silver jump rings. Please bring a "freezer" style ziplock bag (of any size) and a deck of cards to the workshop.

Registration for this workshop begins Tuesday, November 15 at 10:00am.
