November 8 @ 10:00 am - November 10 @ 5:00 pm
Silver Metal Clay Paper Type, a unique paper-thin sheet of 99.9% fine silver clay that remains soft during working time and requires no drying time. This amazing product allows the metal clay enthusiast to expand their repertoire of metal clay techniques. In this workshop students will use Metal Clay Paper type to explore the ageless skills of Quilling and Origami. Quilling is an ancient art technique used during the Renaissance to decorate book covers, cards, jewelry and religious items. It involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, looped, curled and twisted to create shapes. Students will learn this ageless art form using Metal Clay Paper Type. Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures. Students will use Metal Clay Paper Type Plus which can be scored then folded and shaped into sturdy decorative objects. To wrap up the workshop we will discuss other uses for the Paper Type products such as applique techniques, stepped bezel setting for facetted stones and bezel setting for cabochon stones. Join me in this fun and educational workshop and discover new metal clay skills. Prior metal clay experience is helpful but not required.
