Last chance this summer to get a PMC retreat at Perlz in Kelseyville, CA. I really like teaching in a workshop environment, there is plenty of time and space to explore good technique and branch out where the students lead me. Here is the blurb from Perlz, check it out and sign up!
In the spirit of full disclosure, Kelseyville is my hometown, and has a special place in my heart. Time moves slowly there, the summer days are hot- cool off in the lake! There is still a drive in movie theater, and the best county fair....
And yes, I promise to post more often, it's been a busy couple of weeks.....
Emily B. Miller joins us for a guest instructor retreat - this one focused on Precious Metal Clay (PMC). If you’ve been waiting to try this miracle material that starts as clay and fires with a creme brulee torch or a kiln into pure silver, or if you’ve tried to learn how to use it on your own only to be frustrated - now’s your chance!
Join Emily in August to study PMC for three days, covering basic techniques with PMC, stone setting, firing, finishing your pieces, creating hollow forms like beads and making rings.
Sign up for an optional 4th day - come back and embellish your PMC with gold leaf!
If you like, stick around for an optional 4th day - or night, actually - and add gold leaf to your fine silver pieces with the Asian technique of Keum Boo, from 6 - 8 pm on Monday evening. Highlight and add design with shapes and brush strokes of beautiful gold. Learn how to permanently bond gold to silver with heat and pressure at PMC and Keum Boo Gold Leaf.
Tools and texture materials available to share during class. Kit fee covers enough material to make loads of charms, beads, and rings. Light refreshments provided.
Advance registration for this class is highly recommended. Call to reserve your place as soon as you can!
KIT FEE: $175 due and payable to the instructor, first day of the retreat
