Oct. 2 and 9, Silver Clay Jewelry with Mara Mullen-Reinhardt

200.00

Tuesday, October 2 and 9, 6pm-8:30pm, CVA Art Studio

Cost includes all materials. Silver clay is composed of real silver powder and binders and is malleable. After firing with a kiln or torch, the binders are removed, and the silver then becomes a solid form, retaining all the marks of the maker.

In these two, successive workshops students will make pendants for necklaces and/or earrings. Macrame techniques with leather cord will also be shown.
