ART1243: Metal Clay Basics for Jewelry

Learn the art of jewelry-making with metal clay!

Metal clay is a highly versatile jewelry and craft material that has improved dramatically in recent years. Tiny particles of metal such as bronze, copper and silver are suspended in an organic binder and worked like clay, then are dried and kiln-fired at high temperatures to become pure metal. Numerous techniques for embellishing and finishing the fired pieces will be explored.

Students who enroll in Day 1 of the class are also enrolling in the following class in the series. Class will be held at the same day and time the following week.

Basic materials will be provided (metal clay, basic tools, etc. If you desire additional materials, they must be purchased prior to class)

Minimum age: 12

Supervision requirements: During class, all 12- to 15-year-old students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class.

ART103: Silkscreen Printing Basics - SBU

In this hands-on class, learn the basics of silkscreen printing. TechShop makes it easy by using vinyl stencils rather than photo-emulsion. Prepare a vinyl stencil, transfer onto a screen, apply ink to fabric through screen, and then heat set the ink. It’s that simple.

Want to print a t-shirt using your own artwork? Bring a simple black and white drawing that will be cut by hand. Participants who have passed the Vinyl Cutter Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class may bring in a pre-cut design to use. Otherwise, choose from several designs provided. Get ready to start making custom silkscreened t-shirts!

Project: Custom t-shirt or tote bag

Prerequisites: None

Equipment access: Silkscreen station

Minimum age: 12

Supervision requirements: During class, all 12- to 15-year-old students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class.

When using the silkscreen station outside of class time, 12- to 15-year-old members must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU.

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
