April workshops sure to bring sunshine!
New guest artist instructor, Leanne Ellis will be sharing her amazing Metal Clay skills in a special 2-day workshop! Not to be missed.
Saturday & Sunday April 22/23rd, 12am-5pm both days. 6 student max, 3 min. $285pp includes materials. In this class Leanne will introduce you to Silver Metal Clay, an amazing material consisting of sterling or fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. You can create with it as you would with normal clay, it’s extremely versatile. However after firing in a small kiln the result is solid silver – heaven! We will be constructing a bezel pendant, into which we will set a photo, artwork, or other flat memento of your choice and capture it under a glass like crystal clear resin, creating a completely unique heirloom quality piece. The process of creating this pendant will equip you with several simple but eye-catching techniques that can be applied to many of your future metal clay projects. No experience necessary! Deposit of half required to reserve seat.
Leanne has spent most of her career working as an illustrator, but has always loved to make jewellery. A few years ago she decided to dedicate herself fully to the creation of shiny things!
