What is metal clay and what can I make with it? Join us for this workshop and discover the exciting world of metal clay! In this introductory workshop, you will learn the basic techniques and skills needed to successfully create jewelry using metal clay. From the history and composition of metal clay to the best ways to cut, texture, form, shape, fire, and finish you will learn it all.

 

We will work with fine silver clay to create a pair of earrings and a pendant. There will also be information about some of the new base metal clays and the different firing techniques they require. If you fall in love with metal clay, the instructor will provide free firings for two months after the class in her home studio. There is a supply fee of $45 paid to the instructor. Students can bring a bag of lunch.
