Beads and Hollow Forms in Metal Clay
This is an intermediate level metal clay class where you will learn to make a range of different beads and hollow forms. It is aimed at those with some previous experience in PMC or Art Clay, and is highly recommended to anyone looking to combine metal clay with beading. There is often a very limited choice of silver beads in the bead shops and making your own is much more fun and creative.
Techniques covered in this class include:
- Making lentil beads
- Triangle wrap beads with basic stone settings
- How to use syringe and cork clay to create beads
- Pandora beads
...and much more!
This is a great follow on from our Beginners Metal Clay class and will move on your metal clay creations by leaps and bounds. Book early to avoid disappointment.
What you need to bring to this class:
For this class you don't need to bring anything but yourself as everything is provided. However if you have any ideas of what you would like to make, feel free to bring pictures, sketches or ideas.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 8.
We take an hour break for lunch and there are plenty of local shops to get food from, or you can always bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio. If you have any questions regarding this, or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
