Two classes with me in April!
I am teaching a Precious Metal Clay workshop at Art House next month. PMC is this lovely material that is clay-like in texture with silver particles suspended in the body. You mold it, shape it, sand it and then fire it in a kiln. After about 20 minutes you have a piece of jewelry that is 99% silver. Its great for me because I loved jewelry design but I hated sawing and soldering. Plus its instant gratification.
And the lovely ladies of Art House have added another wheel throwing class in April. Its an all levels class. I promise you will have fun and make cool things.
Check out the info below from the Art House site:
Precious Pendant
Precious Metal Clay Studio Class
April 7 – April 21, 3 weeks, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Class fee: $185, all supplies included
Clay turns to silver! Sculpt this extraordinary clay-like material as you would any clay (by hand molds, stamps) to make silver jewelry. By the end of the class you will have made at least 2 pendants and will have learned the skills to work at home.
Wheel Throwing All Levels
April 6 - May 4, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Class fee: $125 (5 weeks), $225 (10 weeks)
Class fee includes: 25lbs of clay, glazes, and firings.
All levels welcome.
Throw bowls and cups on the wheel. Or if you are more advanced, work on plates, teapots, and large bowls. Classes are small so this course is tailored for each individual. Enhance those thrown shapes with hand-built handles, spouts, and decoration. All clays and glazes are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
Hope to see you there!!!
