    This is an introductory course on the basics of creating jewelry using precious metal clay techniques. Metal clay can be easily manipulated by hand just like familiar ceramic clay. However, when fired, the metal clay binding material vaporizes and the metal particulates sinter leaving a solid metal object.

     Metal clay objects may be easily formed by hand, created with commercially available press molds, 3D printed, or provided by the student. Thus, no previous art experience or talent is required to construct beautiful jewelry or other objects with precious metal clay. 

    Although the skills taught in this course are generally appropriate to all metal clay, this class with focus on low cost bronze metal clay while skills are developing. The instructor will supply approximately 30 grams of bronze metal clay. Typically this is enough for a pair of earrings and two medium sized pendants. See photograph for objects created from approximately 30 grams of material. Students will learn skills that may be applied to working with other metal clay such as copper, silver or gold metal clay. 

    Due to the relatively lengthy firing time required, this course is divided into two sessions: in the first, the student will develop their clay objects which will then be fired. In the second session, students will finish their fired objects by polishing and/or applying patinas or dyes, and/or jewelry findings.

    This course will be held in two 3 hour sessions on consecutive weekends: Sunday May 4th and Sunday May 11th from 10 am to 1 pm.

    A materials fee of $25 covers all materials needed for the class including each students bronze metal clay, jewelry findings and finishing materials.
