Workshop

Precious Metal Clay for beginners

W/EMMA LIPKER

    

       Similar to modeling clay, PMC is a combination of organic binding agent and microscopic silver particles.  When fired in a   kiln, the binder burns away and a solid silver piece is formed.  In this one-day workshop, we will focus on the basic   techniques of shaping, cutting and texturing PMC by experimenting and playing with this versatile form of jewelry creation.

  Students can expect to leave with 2-3 pieces of jewelry.

  No  previous jewelry making experience required.

  Materials fee will be  $90.00
