              This class not yet open for registration. Please check back soon.

              There are as many approaches to box construction as there are artists who make them, and master metal clay artist Pam East has created a box project focusing on intricate, delicate details. This challenging, multi-layered project will greatly expand our metal clay skill set as we build a hinged box featuring tiny gears, tiny gemstones, and tight, unobtrusive hinges with smooth action. The precise work will include rolling, texturing and cutting the clay; sanding and prepping greenware elements; creating and fitting mitered corners; and building small, functional components like hinges, cotter pins, and clasp elements. We’ll also be flush setting tiny stones, designing and constructing an open bail, and learning how to mask stamps and texture plates for unique results. Not into steampunk? Choose a garden inspired theme instead with tiny floral-themed components!

              This workshop is intended for students with recent successful metal clay experience, including rolling clay to an even thickness, working with stamps and templates, and proficiency with greenware finishing and using syringe. We’re providing all the tools, equipment and materials you’ll need to complete the projects, so you just have to bring eye magnification and have fun!
