Jewelry: Current Classes

Metal Clay Exploration
In this class, you will learn the sculpting and forming techniques used to create pendants, beads, and rings out of silver metal clay. You will also learn about firing and finishing the pure silver objects you make. Once the basic skills are covered, we will move on to advanced hollow forms and setting synthetic and natural stones into the pieces you create. This class is designed for anyone who has an interest in creating pure silver jewelry or works of art. No experience needed. Course fee includes 1/2 ounce of metal clay. Additional clay can be purchased from the instructor.

Instructor: Laura Juul has been making jewelry all her life. She learned traditional metalsmithing techniques through the Jewelry program at MCTC before discovering Precious Metal Clay (PMC). She became a PMC Guild Certified instructor in 2002 and has been teaching PMC classes in the Twin Cities since then.
