In-Studio Class: Introduction to Art Clay Silver

September 24 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 6:00 pm EDT

Cdn $150.00

Course outline: This one-day workshop with instructor Jenn Jevons 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. You will complete two projects; a stamped charm, and textured pendant. Your projects will be kiln fired, and torch firing will be demonstrated. By the end of the day, you will have a working knowledge of silver metal clay, hands on experience and a take home toolkit so that you can get started creating your own projects right away! 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, materials and equipment will be provided.

This is a physical class in the metal studio. The class will be kept small (no more than 4 students). Everyone will be required to wear a mask at all times during the class.
