April 29, 30, May 1, Linda Kaye-Moses will be teaching "The Next
Dimension; Making Hollow Forms with Precious Metal Clay"
We will explore methods of creating dimensional forms (hollow forms)
using Precious Metal Clay. embellished with designs and textures to
make your forms unique. Using Precious Metal Clay and Precious Metal
Clay+, clay-like forms of Pure Silver, we'll make hollow beads, slip
'cast' objets and a number of hollow vessel forms, while
investigating moldmaking, slip 'casting', appliqu=E9 and other
techniques for manipulating Precious Metal Clay. With the help of
demonstrations, slides and examples, students will design, create,
fire and finish your objets. A tools and equipment list will be
furnished prior to class and all materials for your piece, including
polishing/finishing supplies will be available. Experience in
jewelrymaking is not required for this class, where the only limit
is your imagination and the only prerequisite is enthusiasm.
Beginnners will receive the personal attention that will help them
work with the PMC, though some experience with Precious Metal Clay
will be helpful.
