As magical as Mother Nature herself, metal clay paste lets you make pure silver, exact replicas of delicate leaves, quirky twigs, and elegant seed pods in one short class. Students will learn to select appropriate pods, leaves, and other natural objects for this process., coat the objects with silver clay, and also discuss finishing and polishing. Once your pieces are fired and polished, you’ll have an heirloom piece of jewelry to enjoy, or gift to someone special!
No experience necessary
Depending on time constraints for firing, students may need to pick up finished pieces up to ten days after class.
All tools and equipment provided. Bring your own magnifying eyewear if desired.
