Workshops

Welcome to the Precious Metal Clay Page!

These workshops are also posted on the Arts and Cultural Council of Greater Rochester calendar of events, which can be found on their website at www.artsrochester.org. Just a caveat here, I often list workshops at other locations based on their information from a previous catalog, and may not have the current prices listed. Be sure to call the contact number I list just to be sure.

I offer silver Precious Metal Clay for sale for those who want to work on their own. Please email me for prices. Be sure to indicate which version of PMC you are using, (PMC, PMC+, PMC3). Firing services are available for $20 per firing for PMC and $10 for PMC3. You can expect your fired PMC within a week.

Precious Metal Clay 3
When: Sunday June 8th from 10a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: Elizabeth Agte's Studio
Cost: $50 for the workshop, must register one week in advance.

Come and explore the fun of making jewelry with Precious Metal Clay 3 in this relaxed, small group format. This new and improved version of PMC offers all the excitement of the original PMC, with some added extras. We will be working with this clay-like substance to make silver jewelry in just one full-day session, with the added advantage of less shrinkage, and the ability to fire embedded gemstones in place! First we will work with regular clay to explore ideas and perk up our clay skills. These items will serve as our "sketches" for working in PMC3. Then we will work on actual PMC pieces, fire them while we take a break for lunch, finish and polish them. In addition to your class fee, material fees for PMC3, gemstones, and findings will be paid to the instructor.

Prices will vary depending on what you purchase, ranging from $35.50 (plus tax) and up. The instructor will discuss which gemstones work in this process, please do not bring gemstones that are undocumented.
This cost is in addition to the course fee.
