Part A
Tuesday, May 8, 5:30-7:30 PM

In this exciting class, students will learn a special technique using fine silver PMC3 to transform organic objects into beautiful sculptural pieces suitable for wearing as art jewelry! In Part A, Marianne Hennigar instructs on the properties of the medium and its application. Students will develop a design, begin building the piece, and receive personal guidance in trouble shooting for their work.
This process requires several layers with dry time in-between. Students will need to apply additional layers at home before returning to Part B class.
**What to bring with you: Dried seed pods, plant stems, dried flowers, combustible curiosities, beetle shells, lace or interesting fabric, things made of paper, items that will burn out during kiln-firing. Marianne will also bring items from which you may choose to broaden your selection. Size limit: approximately 2”-3”

Part B
Tuesday, May 15, 5:30-7:30 PM

Marianne will guide students in refining and softening their work, making any needed corrections or additions in preparation for firing. She will demonstrate findings and fastenings in case there are beads or stones from her available selection you may want to add. Pieces will be fired and work-hardened. Pick-up time will be during store hours Saturday, May 19.
Time permitting, you may want to start another piece for which we can connect later to kiln fire.
