Learn the delightful art of Porcelain Painting. This beginning class takes you step by step through the process of creating a unique hand-painted piece of china. Unlike ceramics, this is an art which uses oil based paints over glazed china. You will love the amount of color and detail that can be achieved. No experience is necessary--if you can write your name you can do this. Two choices of subjects. One porcelain piece is provided along with all supplies and firing. Taught by Lynn Patton.
Silver Spiral Chain Class 2 part class - Feb 28, Mar 7 9:30 - 11:30am Learn the art of chaining through the creation of a beautiful 25” silver spiral necklace from sterling silver jump rings. The necklace fits over the head and requires no clasp. Once you have learned the technique, this pattern and others like it can be used to create a variety of beautiful jewelry items limited only by your imagination. During the first class, we will learn how to manipulate jump rings and how to create the spiral pattern. Participants will complete the chain at home then return for the second class to twist, smooth and polish the chain into the necklace. Taught by Peggy Van Arnam
