Event description

Description

CLASS DESCRIPTION Metal clay is an amazing innovation: tiny metal particles are mixed into a moist organic binder. It feels like clay as you texture, shape, and embellish it; then the binder is burned away at temperatures just high enough to turn what’s left into solid metal!

In this session you will make at least one focal piece that can be hung from a necklace. The biggest question will be whether you keep your creation for yourself, or give it as a gift this holiday season!

PLEASE NOTE: Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.

INSTRUCTOR For the past decade Carol Scheftic has been working with and teaching classes using a range of different “powder metallurgy” techniques. Carol has been certified as a metal clay Artisan by Rio Grande (a major jewelry supply company and importer of the PMC-brand of precious metal clays) and accredited as an Instructor in a program organized by Hadar Jacobson (USA-based inventor, manufacturer, and distributor of a line of base metal clays). She is a member of the Cranberry Artists Network, the Pittsburgh Society of Artists, and the International Guild of Miniature Artisans.
