STONE SETTING IN METAL CLAY - Two day masterclass.
Saturday & Sunday 7-8 October 2017
9:00am - 5:30pm
We're so excited to welcome Wanaree back to our studio again! This is Wanaree's only class in Europe this year (apart from the masterclasses she held as part of the You can make it 2017 event), so don't miss this chance to learn from this very special metal clay master.
Learn how to set those very special stones that can't be fired. In this exciting 2-day metal clay masterclass, Wanaree will demonstrate her approach to creating dimensional and dynamic non-fireable stone settings in silver metal clay, utilising her detailed and beautifully designed Signature Die Cut Tools. This free-form design method allows for the creation of custom flawless stone settings, built to fit even after firing. You'll leave with a beautifully set gemstone pendant that you can wear proudly, and all the knowledge to create your own custom stone settings at home!

- Art Clay 950 Sterling clay 50gm
- use of Wanaree's Signature Tools and other tools needed
- coffee/tea and something sweet
Techniques taught in this workshop:
- how to accommodate for firing shrinkage
- Wanaree's Die Cut Tool method
