New Metal Artists - Creating with Metal Clay

As before, we were going to focus on a demo of metal clay, although our group, New Metal Artists (NMA), inspire one another in many different jewelry mediums. Our demos will show a variety of different types of metal clays, how to roll out the clay, how it can be textured and molded, and we will have finished pieces on display.

New Metal Artists – A supportive community of jewelry and small object artists gathering for support and knowledge. We love new faces, so join us for our next meeting; second Sunday of each month, see the reminders and wrap-ups for location.
