Make a Metal Clay Charm Bracelet
Beginners and Improvers
10am to 5pm
This class is designed for beginners and improvers and is for anyone who would like to learn techniques for working with metal clay. By the end of this exciting day you will have made a silver charm bracelet.
Metal clay is a clay based substance containing millions of tiny silver particles. When you fire the clay under a torch or in a kiln all of the clay burns away and you are left with solid silver - it's like magic!
One of the great advantages to working in metal clay is that it is relatively easy to continue working at home after the class without a big investment as you don't need many tools or equipment.
Techniques covered in this class include:
- Rolling out the clay to a consistent thickness
- Texturing and cutting out shapes
- Sanding, polishing and drilling
- Torch firing and basics of kiln firing
- Basic stone setting
- Adding multiple layers of clay and much more...
We generally follow three projects throughout the day which include:
- A small stone set charm
- A small charm using moulding compound
- A textured charm using scratch foam
However, there is also lots of flexibility in terms of design and experimentation. By the end of the day you should have enough skills to go away and start making things from home. You will also take home a hand crafted metal clay charm bracelet! All materials are included in the class as well as full class notes.
