Metal Clay Beads – NEW!
Use dry construction techniques to make three-dimensional, hollow beads. We’ll start with learning how to make basic bead shapes, drill holes, and string beads. Then we’ll move on to creating boxes and other hollow forms. Create lentil, pillow, drum, and tube beads, and leave with a set of hollow beads that can be used in future jewelry projects.
- Prerequisite: Previous experience with metal clay is required. Materials will be available for purchase in class at a discounted cost; plan to spend between $45 and $100 on material.
- No class November 22.
