Celestial Rings - One day class
Friday, 7 June 2019
9:00am - 5:00pm
This one day ring making workshop is packed with great techniques. Joy is a fantastic teacher, as well as artist, and were sure you'll leave this class not just with a fabulous ring, but lots of valuable new techniques and tips on how to work with metal clay.
Maybe you'll want to theme your ring on a planet or other celestial body. You'll learn how to make a ring band that has a squared off shape on the outside which is great to help stop the ring turning when it is being worn. We'll cover carving designs, adapting textures and shapes to make them more interesting, making small decorations, making a three dimensional topper for the ring made of several elements and firing large and small stones. You'll end up with your own unique ring to wear home.
Techniques covered in this class:
- Constructing a strong and comfortable ring
- Stone setting - multiple stones
- Working with textures
- Making tiny decorations
- Making a three dimensional metal clay design
- Combining metal clay elements
- 25g Art Clay Silver (.999)
- A 7mm fireable stone
- Up to 10 x 2mm fireable stones
- Coffee/tea and something sweet
You will need a standard metal clay tool kit for this class. If you are missing any tools or struggling to bring them, let us know as we can help.
PLEASE NOTE: This course is suitable for those with some metal clay experience.
