19R229J - Silver Metal Clay Birdhouse or Fairy House


In this intermediate class you will learn how to construct a small fine silver birdhouse or fairy house with fine silver metal clay. You will form separate parts of the house then put them together using dry construction techniques. This requires accurate sizing and refining, plus learning how to attach three-dimensional pieces. Sherry will show you different methods for decorating and attaching your miniature house to allow you to hang it from a cord or chain. After firing and finishing your house you can polish and patina it as desired.

This is not a class to try without previous experience with metal clay either with Sherry or someone else. If you have any questions, I will be happy to discuss them with you.

Materials fee include
s silver metal clay, paste, and syringe and silver wire, plus stones or silver sheet as desired for embellishments.

Level: Intermediate and above
