SILVER METAL CLAY   class information



This is my most popular class and the one to take if you've been wanting to give precious
metal clay a try!  In this class we either make a textured rolled bail pendant or you
have the choice of using the Makin's Creative System to design your own
piece. We focus on hand finishing techniques, fire the pieces in class using a
torch and you recieve comprehensive written notes for your reference
if you are game to give PMC a try at home! 
You will complete your piece in this class.

COPPRclay or BRONZclay

Using the original base metal clays, we utilize the Makin's Creative System to fabricate your
own piece of Art Jewellery.  We spend the day designing and refining your pieces, which are then
fired in the studio kiln.  As the firing process takes some time, you can either elect to have the pieces tumbled
and posted out to you, or return at a convenient time and spend an hour finishing them yourself.
