Art Jewelry with Bronze / Copper / Steel Metal Clay
Two half-day sessions; weekdays or weekends; usually $80 (total for both sessions) plus materials & select tools.
NEW workshops! More than a decade after “precious metal” (silver & gold) powdered-metal products hit the market with great success, “base metal” versions (copper, plus various bronze or steel alloys) have now also been introduced. These metals allow us to make interesting color combinations, whether simply using two metals in a piece or extending their contrast though special patinas. Each two-session workshop covers one complete project: we build pieces in the first class, and polish/finish them in the second. Each project features one or more specific techniques, so you can learn new skills each time. (Ask about multi-workshop discounts.).
Metal Clay Firing and/or Tumbling
By chance or appointment. $10/load fine silver (base metal prices vary by product, and can be higher).
Do you love working with metal clay but don’t have your own kiln or tumbler? Firing and/or tumbling services are available.

Could you use time in a fully-equipped workshop to explore your own ideas? Don’t wait for a specific class! Join an open-studio session or schedule a lesson in metal clay / powder metallurgy (silver, bronze, copper, steel) or other metal-smithing or jewelry-making techniques tailored to your interests on a day & time that work for you! Come on your own, or gather a small group of friends: we can have a party!
