    Join jewelry designer Hattie Weselyk to explore the art of precious metal clay and create your own silver jewelry inspired by botanical finds.

After the class, you’ll take home a custom-designed necklace pendant and pair of earrings. 

    Session 1 (April 2): Students will create their clay form, which will cure for two days before firing.
    Session 2 (April 9): Students will complete their fired pieces with antiqued finishes and filing. 

    Reservations are required. $89 per person. Cost includes all materials and tools to create one pair of silver earrings and one silver necklace pendant. Students must attend both class sessions to complete their jewelry. No prior experience is required.
