3 Day Workshop
This "Beginner Friendly" 3 day intensive program will give you hands on experience in mastering techniques for working with Fine Silver metal clay.
Under Rodi's guidance you will create your own template and design, your own unique piece that incorporates hand -forming techniques. You will decorate both the front and the back of the pendant with hand formed and carved elements inspired by nature. After kiln firing the piece, you will also bezel set a stone by creating and soldering a bezel setting. You will also sand, polish and patina your piece based on your preferred finish. Natures Embrace is designed to break the mold and enhance your design skills. You will be producing, not reproducing a piece.
