Introduction to Metal Clay — Level 1

Wednesdays, 6 weeks
April 5 – May 10 / 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Metal Clay is a unique type of clay made up of microscopic particles of real metal, water, and a binder. The clay can be shaped with tools or even using just your hands! After creating your piece in clay, you’ll fire it and the water and binder will burn away, leaving you with a piece of real silver or copper metal. This more in-depth introductory class allows students to learn the basics by using copper clay, which is a more economical material. Students will also have the opportunity to purchase their own silver metal clay. Participants will learn how to properly handle and store clay, how to roll out and texturize it using rubber stamps or found objects, and how to construct flat and dimensional pieces. You’ll be amazed by the possibilities of this medium!
