Origami with FYI Silver Clay

September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $75.00

Course outline: Transfer the beauty of paper origami to fine silver metal clay! In this class with Christine Woollacott, students will learn to prepare smooth, flexible sheets of FYI fine silver metal clay. These sheets will then be used for simple origami projects that will be kiln fired to create whimsical metal components. This technique is particularly suitable for using up small amounts of metal clay after a larger project has been created.

Skill level: Beginner

Prerequisite: Patience and enthusiasm. Experience using metal clay or experience folding origami are helpful, but not necessary.

Technique: Learn to use lump FYI fine silver metal clay to create smooth, flexible sheets of foldable metal clay. Using origami techniques, interesting and stylish focal elements can be created quickly, and easily.

Bring to class: At least 10 grams of FYI fine silver metal clay. Personal metal clay tools (important tools include slats, pin tools, files and sanding foam). Some tools are available in the studio.
