Metal clay is a relatively new product consisting of microscopic particles of metal in a moist organic binder. It is pliable like clay and fired in a kiln to burn off the binder and fuse the particles into a solid piece of metal. It is a very versatile material that lends itself to mixed media combinations with glass, ceramics, and other materials as well as with traditional metalsmithing techniques. Accessible and easy to learn, beautiful pieces can be made by the average crafter in an afternoon. In this workshop, you will design your own texture plate and templates to make a one-of a kind pendant and earring set. Add some sparkle to your creations with your choice of CZ. Learn how to roll and texture the clay, make a bail, set a stone, and finish and polish your pieces.
A $75 materials fee is paid directly to the instructor. In addition, students must purchase metal clay, either online or from the instructor. See supply list for details.
