Bronze Metal Clay workshop Saturay at Tryon Arts &Crafts

Calling all bronze metal clay fanatics or those just learning.&bsp; In July of 2008, a new metal clay was added to the market, and it has become popular with precious metal clay lovers. Bronze clay has subtle differences from precious metal clay or art clay but one of the main advantages is the lower cost ‐ plus it looks similar to gold. Several items can be made from one 100 gram package of bronze clay.

Join Tryon Arts & Crafts in learning more about this product or honing your existing skills.&bsp;&bsp; Come study with Ellen Miles in a workshop Saturday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 30 from 1 to 3 p.m.&bsp; Students are asked to bring a bag lunch and drinks.
