Craft Series One Night Workshop: Basics of Silver Metal Clay: The New Metalwork Method with Lisa Horton

What’s the new, new thing in the jewelry making world? Hint: there’s low tool cost; it’s nontoxic and safe enough to do at your kitchen table; and the material is versatile and responsive. It’s Silver Metal Clay! The name comes from the method, which is akin to hand-building ceramic clay, but the material itself contains only finely powdered metal particles in a water-holding base. “Metal clay” paradoxically produces pieces that are solid metal.

Dip your toe into the dazzling world of the myriad metal clays with this beginner class where we will use PMC+. In just three hours, we’ll shape and texture a pendant and earring dangles, fire the pieces with a kitchen torch, then polish and add patina. You’ll leave with ready to wear silver jewelry and your brain awash with new possibilities for jewelry construction.

2019 One Night Workshops are generously supported by Heather Horton.
