02/15/2020 - 1:00pm

Join us Saturday February 15th, 2020 at 1pm, LIVE online and learn to make a hollow form using metal clays with master jewelry maker Hadar Jacobson!

These shapes are built “down” in reverse. We start with a solid shape and then hollow out by carving.

Watch as Hadar reveals her techniques for creating sculptural pendants and earrings. Ms. Jacobson starts with an overview of clay choices from her own line of unique colored metal clays, combining both bronze and steel metal clays for this project. Learn how she adds both granulation and patina, to create a variety of dramatic effects.

Ms. Jacobson will show you everything you need to know for you to be successful in creating your own sculptural designs!

AND during the LIVE class, the instructor will take questions from attendees!!
