Joyful Links and Chains - Art Clay and Enamels with Joy Funnell
17-18 November 2017 (Friday-Saturday)
Sampler Workshop with Enamelling
Nothing enhances a lovely pendant more than a handmade chain to complement it which is why we have once again asked the lovely International Senior Art Clay Instructor, Joy Funnell, to show you how!
Chain making is fun, but can require a bit of patience! On this two day workshop you will explore a large variety of techniques for making chains. You'll make links using silver wire, Art Clay Silver, and a combination of the two. Why is this a 'sampler' workshop? Because you'll make a whole selection of different links so you go away armed with the techniques to inspire you to create your very own unique chains.
Since Joy first started teaching this workshop she has expanded her range of link designs and you'll have plenty of time to try all the different styles over the two days. You will also make some links that are suitable for adding colour on to and on day two you'll enamel some of the links to add even more joyfulness to your chain.
From working with metal clay and soldering wire to bashing things with a hammer, this will be a fun and varied two day workshop.
Included in the class price is the use of tools and equipment, silver wire, assorted silver findings and 30g of Art Clay Silver! A light lunch and refreshments will also be provided each day.
Skill Level: Previous metal clay experience advantageous
