In this two-day course, students will learn all of the fundamental skills required to work with metal clays and be successful with all PMC products.
Students will practice all of the fundamental techniques including rolling, texturing, cutting, carving, sculpting, molding, refining, firing and polishing. Extra time will be taken to discuss firing processes and each student will practice torch firing along with kiln firing.
Students will make five projects including a pair earrings with a firable stone, a double textured pendant with syringe detail, wrapped beads, a sculpted toggle clasp and a wrapped ring with a firable stone. The class will utilize PMC3, PMC Flex and PMC OneFire 950 clays to ensure each student learns the appropriate usage of each type of clay.

Upon completion of the projects and lecture time, students will take a short written test. Each student will receive a Certificate of Completion from Sawtooth School for Visual Art and a 8% discount on all PMC clays at Clay Revolution and Rio Grande Jewelry Supply.
