SPRING CLASS SCHEDULE

 

Introduction to Metal Clay  – (Your Choice of Pendant, Charms or Earrings)    Gail Moriarty 

Saturday, March 21
10:30 – 3pm
Tuition: $50 Materials: $35+
Ages: Adults and teens 12+ 

This introductory class is for people who are not familiar with metal clay.  Metal Clay consists of microscopic particles of silver, gold, copper and base metals combined with an organic binder.  Metal Clay can be worked with carving tools, molds, shapes and textures.  Your creativity is the limit.  Once your piece is filed to a smooth finish, it is fired in a kiln.  The organic binder burns off, and the piece is then solid metal.  We will discuss the workings of the clay, the tools used, and the process from beginning to end after which you’ll have a piece of jewelry of your own creation and choice: pendant, charms, earrings, etc…
