Intro: Precious Metal Clay

- $150

*** Pre-Registration required: Monday January 26th at noon deadline ***
Become an Alchemist! Join us and turn clay into silver jewelry and treasures in one afternoon!
Precious Metal Clay (PMC) feels and reacts like clay, dries like clay, and when fired in a kiln, becomes solid fine silver. We will cover care and use of precious metal clay, various forms of metal clay (paste, syringe, slip), tools and supplies, basic construction, rolling, texturing, cutting, coiling, layering and joining. We will also cover firing, brushing, and polishing. PMC is perfect for those comfortable working with clay and this workshop is a fun activity to share with a friend, daughter, sister, or spouse. Make one-of-a-kind silver creations that you will be proud to wear or give as gifts: buttons, charms, earrings, key fob, bead, or decorative object of your choice. Bring lunch or snack and you may want to bring a notebook and pencil. Basic tools will be provided, however a materials fee which ranges depending on clay use, starts at around $50 (depending upon silver price at that time) – this will be collected by the instructor.
