Technique Discovery Workshop

"W (Emballage de Gomme) -100% DRY Metal Clay Joinery!" with Kim Struve

Registration opens January 1st

Sunday, August 27, 2023, 10:00 am - 12:00 noon

These fun Technique Discovery Workshops are just $1 each, and are open only to attendees who've purchased the MCAS General Registration. Please choose just one Sunday Technique Discovery Workshop. They're held simultaneously.

The W represents most important questions: who, what, when, where, why, how. Imagine how you’d love metal clay art minus wet clay prep, tools, mess, dry-time and fragility. Embrace reality via Fold Lock techniques applied to fine silver Metal Leather -dry clay strips boasting structural integrity to pinch, punch, shove, tug... Be ready to create anywhere from here to there, on a plane or a train, yet it need not be far when in a car as it’s fast like a rocket with kits in your pocket! Expand your repertoire with Kim Struve’s Fold Lock techniques. Warning: experience with the complementary Metal Leather may further augment studio diversity and enlarge creation locations. We will master the Fold Lock: Slide technique and practice decorations with colorful paper; use Metal Leather kit (included) to make a fine silver W; troubleshoot; solve; and, discuss firing. SASE required to enjoy free firing. Please bring hand-held hole/shape punches, 4mm (1/8”) and smaller.

Note: A $10 kit fee will be collected by the instructor during this Technique Discovery Workshop.
