Tangible Moments: Capturing the beauty of Nature in Metal Clay | with Judi Talley
9/14/2020 - 9/230/2020
Short Class Description (see Class pages for full description)
In this class, I will introduce you to the fascinating medium of metal clay and demonstrate how everyday moments in nature can be captured permanently in metal. While all levels of metal clay interest are welcome, we will be concentrating on capturing natural forms. Using gathered plant materials, you will create a selection of molds in different materials. From these molds, you will fashion one pendant in silver and one in bronze alloy clay to experience the differences (and understand the challenges) between working with different metals. You will also experience the wonder—and joy—of capturing leaf and vine into fine clays and producing a functional and beautiful piece of jewelry.
All levels of expertise are welcome to attend. You may bring your own tools if you wish, but don’t feel like you have to bring anything but yourself!
