Workshops

Precious Metal Clay; Teacher Martie Boyer Tuition: $95

PMC consists of microscopic particles of silver suspened in an organic binder to create pliable material with a consistency similar to modeling clay.  When fired in a kiln, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse, forming a solid piece of silver. In the one-day workshop we will focus on learning basic techniques with PMC: how to form, cut mold and texture the material.  NO previous jewelry experience is necessary, and all tools will be provided.  Students can expect to leave class with at least 2-3 pieces of jewelry.   Please bring  a $50 materials fee.
