Metal Clay Workshops with Metal Keys Designs

If you can play with play dough, you can make jewellery using metal clay! Art Clay Silver is a non-toxic clay made of recycled fine silver particles combined with an organic binder. After forming and finishing the clay, you will use a small butane torch to fire your piece to burn away the organic binder. After firing, you will have a solid piece of 99.9% fine silver jewellery. You will be amazed at the results!

 

Metal Keys Designs is owned by metal clay artist Tracy Lai. Tracy specializes in creating jewellery using fine and sterling silver. Her pieces often incorporate enamels, stones, resin, Keum Boo, and mixed metals. Tracy comes from an arts background and her works are influenced by her interests in music, Asian art, and styles of the past such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau.

 

Tracy is an Art Clay Senior Certified Instructor. She teaches in Simcoe County, Ontario and in the Greater Toronto Area. Tracy continues to keep up to date of the development of metal clay by regularly attending classes, including Instructor Intensives at Art Clay World.

Metal Clay with Love

 

Metal Clay with Love!

Just in time for Valentine‚Äôs Day, you can make a special piece of jewellery for someone you love. In this workshop, you will work with fine silver metal clay, a unique clay made up of tiny particles of recycled pure silver with a non-toxic organic binder.  Fine silver metal clay can be formed, dried, finished and fired.  Firing the clay will burn away the binder, resulting in a beautiful piece of pure 99.9% fine silver that will be treasured for years to come.

Each participant will make one small charm using molds and texture plates.   There will be heart and love themed patterns to work with, but there will also be many other designs available with something suitable for everyone. After the workshop, the charms will be fired in a kiln and tumbled to a shine, to be picked up at a later date.

The cost of the workshop includes a small package of Art Clay Silver metal clay, use of tools for the day and a sterling silver jump ring for the charm.  Necklace and bracelet chains are not included, but can be purchased separately the day of the workshop.
