Metal Clay Meets Mother Nature

ID : 11441   
« back to classes page

As magical as Mother Nature herself, metal clay paste lets you make pure silver, exact replicas of delicate leaves, quirky twigs, and elegant seed pods in one short class. Students will learn to select appropriate pods, leaves, and other natural objects for this process, coat the objects with silver clay, and also discuss finishing and polishing.  A second project uses metal clay and an embossing technique to create a pendant. You’ll also learn unusual types of bails for suspending your pendants from a necklace. Once your pieces are fired and polished, you'll have an heirloom piece of jewelry to enjoy, or gift to someone special!

Students will have time to finish two to three pieces, depending on the complexity of their design. After class, we’ll fire your pieces in our jewelry kilns and pre-polish them with our magnetic tumbler. You will return to pick up your finished piece and add patina one week after the last class.

No experience necessary! Class size is limited so register early!
