Explore the unlimited potential of Precious Metal Clay during this exciting and in depth workshop while you create a unique, one of a kind, pendant and earring set. This program is designed to give you hands on experience in basic techniques for working with metal clay. You will learn what metal clay is, the different forms it comes in and how to best care for, work with and store it. An extensive overview of tools and equipment will be provided. You will be shown best practices for working with the clay, including rolling, texturing, stamping, cutting, shaping, coiling, layering, drilling and embellishing.
Once you create your unique pieces, you will be shown how to sand, refine and further embellish them. Then they will be fired. Post firing finishing will then be covered, including brushing, polishing, tumbling and adding patina if you so desire. While the pieces are firing, your instructor will demonstrate advanced techniques to inspire you for future projects.
