Once again, we have the pleasure of offering you a metal clay workshop instructed by Pam Feindel.

Pam is offering 2 one day beginner workshops using Bronze and Fine Silver metal clay.
Colorful Bronze Pendant – Jan 25th – No previous experience required
Ever dreamed about combining some pretty colors with your jewellery pieces, now you can. We will be working with brilliant bronze metal clay and pebeo Prisma paint to add little hints of color. Each student can create their own design when making this whimsical pendant.
Students will learn how to mix, roll & texture bronze clay. You will learn how to cut shapes, make bails, and how to finish greenware and fired metal, as well as how to use pebeo Prisma paint to add a little color.
Base metals need to be fired overnight so you will have to return to the studio to finish your piece and to add your color before you can take your pendant home. If you will be attending the Sunday workshop on Jan 26th you will have time during the class to finish your piece.
We will be working in Bronze so your pieces will be a gold color. The pieces in these photos have been made with steel and fine silver metal clays and enamel.
Fine Silver Ring – Jan 26th- Previous metal clay experience required (Saturday’s workshop or other metal clay experience)
Learn how to make a beautiful fine silver (.999) ring. You will be able to embellish the ring with your own design. Students will learn the techniques describe above in addition you will learn how to use a ring mandrel to shape and size a ring, taking into account metal clay shrinkage. We will have to be very productive during the day to be able to finish these rings during our workshop. The complexity of the type of ring you decide to make will be based on your skill level.
Please bring the following:
*Your lunch and snacks as well as an Opti-visor if you need one, an apron and your slippers.
*Students should arrive 15 mins before the workshop begins so you have time to settle in.
