If you are interested in learning to work with metal clays-- this is the month to do it! We have a number of introductory courses as well as an advanced course, making it the perfect time to do it.
Friday February 12th is Charmed I'm Sure with Heather Bell-Denison from 10:30-5:30pm. This is an introductory Art Clay Silver class.
Saturday February 13th, from 10 to 5pm, is An Introduction to Art Clay Copper. This class is very different from the Art Clay Silver class and it is recommended that if you are interested in working with Art Clay Silver and Art Clay Copper you should take both of these introductory courses. The clays work in different ways and there are tricks to working with each.
If you are looking for a more advanced metal clay class Heather is also offering the Art Clay Level One Certification Course on February 26th to 28th. This is a specialized course for people interested in learning and demonstrating proficiency in the use of Art Clay Silver. Students should have taken an Introductory course, as well as, having lots of practise using Art Clay Silver before taking this class.
