Introduction to Precious Metal Clay with Amy Brandenburg
September 4, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Explore jewelry making using Precious Metal Clay. PMC is clay made of metal particles, which allows you to sculpt and create pieces that become solid, fine silver when fired. Each student will be able to create a pair of small earrings and a charm or a bead. You will learn how to texture the clay, fire, patina, and polish. All skill levels and ages 14+ are welcome.
Amy Brandenburg is a certified PMC instructor who has been teaching metal clay for the last 9 years. She received a BA in Jewelry Design from Columbia College in Chicago and an MA in Visual Culture; Costume Studies from NYU. An award-winning metal clay artist and member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild for the last 5 years, she creates jewelry inspired by history, nature, and architecture that is enameled, carved, and three-dimensional. Sharing her passion for metal clay, she creates an environment where others can experiment, learn and grow.
