"Linked Bracelet Workshop in Metal Clay"
August 17-18, 2019
 

Come spend time exploring the unlimited potential of metal clay and create a linked bracelet. Learn how to roll, texture, and cut the fine silver metal clay and then fire it. You will finish/polish the piece to bring out the shine. At the end of the class you will be wearing your piece! What is Metal Clay? Metal Clay was created in the early 1990’s in Japan for the purpose of using reclaimed silver. When heated by torch or kiln, the organic binder burns away and the metal particles fuse, forming solid metal that can be treated as you would traditional silver. Level: Beginners and those wanting to refresh their skills are welcome. Materials: Clay and tools will be supplied.
