The following classes are held at the Visual Arts Center. This is where you can see full descriptions, rates, and sign up for the class.
Metal Clay Fundamentals - Thursday Evenings July 17 through Aug 21 from 6:30 - 9:00pm
Metal Clay is a wonderful jewelry making material that can be manipulated like ceramic clay, but when fired results in a pure silver object. Make your own textures and templates, create reversible designs, apply decorative appliquès, and much more. Tools will be provided and materials will be sold to students in class at a discount.
Metal Clay Beads - Wednesday Evenings Aug 6 through September 3 from 6pm to 9pm
Beads can be a gateway to making boxes and other containers. Learn to construct four different, 3D hollow beads in fine silver metal clay. Using a number of ordinary household objects as building forms, we make 'pillow', 'tube', 'lentil' and 'stilted' beads and discuss how these forms can be altered to make a variety of other objects. Previous experience with metal clay is a plus.
