Saratoga Springs, NY
Camp PMC Certification Course 101 was designed as a two day class teaching the fundamental skills, techniques and best practices for working with PMC. In the 5 different projects, the student learns to roll, cut, carve, sculpt, mold, set stones, combine elements, incorporate embeddables, torch fire, program a kiln, etc. In doing these projects (earrings with a fire in place stone, a double textured pendant with syringe detail, wrapped beads, a sculpted toggle clasp and a wrapped ring with a fire in place stone) the student receives and learns how and when best to use 20g of PMC3, 25g of PMC OneFire 950, 5g of PMC Flex and a 9g PMC3 Syringe of clay. Students also receive an extensive manual of project information and general PMC information, stones, embeddable findings and ear wires and have use of all materials and tools to complete the projects. A great variety of skills are taught and both experienced and new PMC users can be successful. Upon successful completion of the class (projects, lecture time and written test), the student will receive an 8% discount on future purchases of PMC through Rio Grande and Clay Revolution. The course is sponsored by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, Rio Grande, Clay Revolution and Sawtooth School for Visual Art. This course is $490 total which includes everything!
One recent twist on this course is that Mitsubishi has said that they will be no longer manufacturing PMC products after March 2023. Someone else may pick up this processing or we will be utilizing other brands. Either way, the information in this course applies to all brands of metal clays and will transfer well to whatever clay you choose to use in the future. (Carrie Story from Clay Revolution will be updating me regarding the discounting process for students completing the course. At this time, she will continue to discount clays she sells.)
There is room for 2 more participants in this group.
