Have you ever wanted to dabble in Precious Metal Clay? Make your own creations like a silversmith, but without all the hard work? Think it’s too hard to do? Well then Peg Gyldenege is the instructor for you!

You’ll learn how to work with PMC in a fun, let-your-hair-down kind of environment. You’ll be guided by Peg — who has 12 years experience working with this medium — and you will leave with a finished piece! Ta-daaa! Just look at this gorgeous swimming fish from one of the workshops she’ll be teaching at this year’s Portland Art & Soul. Isn’t it just gorgeous? Imagine leaving class with that around your neck and being able to say, “Yes, I made this!”

Peg will be teaching 3 workshops featuring PMC this year, so check them out and sign up for your favorite!

Luminous Leaves — where you’ll capture the organic shape and feel of leaves from the garden in fine silver. You’ll fashion a necklace with unique embellishments to hang your creations from.

Four Seasons Kimono Book Amulet — here you’ll create a tiny book celebrating the 4 seasons of the garden, creating a kimono and accents with PMC. Capture a bit of the garden int this fine memento of wearable art.

Under The Sea — create a jaunty fish complete with a bezel set semiprecious stone eye. Learn to set gems in Metal clay both fire-in place and bezel setting in this swimmingly spectacular necklace!
