Course outline: This one-day workshop is a primer on all of the basics of the incredible medium of Art Clay Silver. Learn about the different forms of silver clay, proper handling and storing technique as well as cutting, sanding, polishing and finishing. This workshop will focus on three projects; a stamped charm, a pair of textured earrings, and a relief pendant or hollow bead. We will both torch and kiln fire projects in class, and choosing the appropriate method will be thoroughly demonstrated. Materials and supplies for in-class projects plus a starter toolkit are included in the course fee. Art Clay Silver is not included, but is available for purchase at BeadFX. All tools and equipment will be provided. For more information, please visit www.metalclayatelier.ca.
