Essential Oil Diffuser in Metal Clay (2 days)

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - May 12 @ 5:00 pm

Cdn $170.00

Course outline: In this class with Liz Reynolds, you will create a tube holder, with decorative cut-outs, for a wick to which essential oils can be added, providing personal aromatherapy throughout the day. We will explore different methods for guiding a chain, either on the top or sides. Various open and lidded versions will be explored.

In this very focused two-day class, you will use Prometheus base metal clay (either Bronze, Sunny Bronze or Greenish Yellow Bronze clay). Prometheus Clay in lump form is ready to use straight out of the package, however, its better with a little bit of conditioning and this will be demonstrated.

Kiln firing is included in this class, as well as one chain and wick. Additional chain and wicks are available for purchase from the instructor.

This class will take place on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12; 12:00 – 5:00pm both days.

Skill level: Beginner

Prerequisite: Some experience with metal clay is helpful but not necessary.

Technique: Creating a hollow tube form with closed bottom and decorative lid; attaching top or side guides for neck chain; assembling, sealing, sanding and refining form; embellishing.

Bring to class: Metal clay tools, if you have them, otherwise they will be provided by BeadFX. Prometheus metal clay in Bornze, Sunny Bronze or Greenish Yellow Bronze; all can be purchased at BeadFX.
