A&H’s Lake Lily Campus

Saturday, April 16 | 10 am – 2 pm

Instructor: Marion Fague-Bass

Location: Cottage at Lake Lily

Cost: $65 + $55 materials fee

In this class you will learn how to use two-part silicone molding compound to make reusable molds from natural plant materials. You may bring items from your own yard, or forage the Art Center grounds for little lovelies. Small leaves and tiny flowers work best – don’t forget weeds, they have amazing shapes and textures! (Don’t worry if you’re feeling clueless, the instructor will have plenty available for you to choose from!) After making the mold, you will receive 10 grams of fine silver metal clay and learn how to create charms for bracelets, earrings or pendants. Your pieces will be fired after class and available for pick up the following week. Included in the materials fee is your choice of one (1) sterling silver chain, one (1) leather cord with SS clasp, one (1) pair SS earwires, OR one (1) SS lobster claw spring clasp. Additional chains, earwires, CZs, etc. will be available for purchase at a modest price. Additional metal clay will also be available to purchase at a substantial discount during the workshop only.
