Prerequisite:  Torch skills


This workshop will teach you the techniques of working with PMC (Precious Metal Clay), both kiln-fired and torch-fired. Students will learn how to achieve design and texture with stamps, molds, texture plates and other materials, plus how to use the PMC with minimum waste of the material.. The techniques taught will allow you to work from home with a minimal investment in equipment. You will complete one pair of earrings and a pendant in this workshop, in textures and shapes of your choosing. 

 

A materials kit ($25 value) is included in your tuition and covers the PMC for the class projects.
