Date: Saturday, 4/18
Time: 10:00AM - 2:00PM
Location: Alliance Arts Center, 124 Route 6A, Sandwich, MA
Cost: $60 members/$70 non-members
Using domed objects you will build a beautiful 3-dimensional object from silver metal clay that has a hollow core. It can be used as a traditional bead or can become a button, a clasp component, or a pendant, depending on how you finish it.
Previous experience using metal clay is highly recommended.
Kim will provide all the necessary tools and equipment needed, although participants are encouraged to bring tools of their own if they have any. Clay is not included in the workshop fee and will be available for purchase when each piece is completed and weighed.
