BeadFX Comprehensive Summer Course: Art Clay Intensive: Toggles in Art Clay Silver 950

July 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Cdn $140.00

Course outline: You’ve got the basics, and now you’re looking for ways to infuse your metal clay work with your signature style? I hear you! The only thing I love more than a toggle is a killer, swoon-worthy toggle that provides the jumping off point for your piece. It makes me happy just thinking about it! I’m going to show you how to turn a toggle into the focal point of your necklace or bracelet. We will discuss why I use Art Clay Silver 950, and I will share my secrets for keeping your toggles secure during wear.

Materials for in-class projects are included in the course fee. Art Clay Silver 950 is not included, but is available for purchase at BeadFX. For more information, please visit www.metalclayatelier.ca. This class is limited to only 6 students to allow lots of personal attention.
