Coming up soon: a three day workshop dedicated to enameling on metal clay, to be taught by Cindy Silas, a well known metal clay artist. The workshop will take place September 15-17, 2017 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) from 10:30am-4:30pm, at the Glen Echo Park in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.
Students will learn to make and enamel metal clay jewelry or other small items in both silver and copper clay. They will spend the first two days creating metal clay pieces for enameling with custom shapes, thicknesses, textures, and embellishments such as bails, bezels, and fireable gemstones. Students will learn metal clay specific techniques such as texturing, cutting, doming, construction, firing, and finishing. Enameling on other metals that are available in clay form such as sterling, bronze, and steel will be discussed. On day three, students will learn the ins and outs of enameling their metal clay creations plus learn a few additional techniques that Cindy has developed that can embellish enameled work. Enamels will be provided. Students can buy PMC3 silver and COPPRclay from the instructor or bring those brands of metal clay. The cost of the three day workshop is $350.
