Join us in this 5-week workshop and learn how to make fine silver jewelry using Precious Metal Clay. PMC is a nontoxic putty-like clay made from powdered fine metals which is worked with the simplest of tools. It can be worked wet or dry. When dry it is filed, drilled, carved or sanded. Dried work is fired in a kiln to fuse the metal particles producing a solid metal object. Fused PMC can be soldered, filed, colored with patinas or enameled on. We will be using PMC+ clay, PMC+ paper sheet and PMC3 slip. You will learn how to fire CZ stone in place. We will also make an RTV silicone rubber mold.

No matter what stage you're in, this course uses the workshop approach to help you ignite a new screenplay, make significant headway on one already in progress or finish a first-draft script. The overall goal is to make sure you have a strong movie premise, a clear genre, a treatment that tells the story well, an outline built on an exciting scene-by-scene sequence structure and a script that can be produced. Sessions include structural breakdowns of feature films, discussion of assigned readings, application of screenwriting techniques and pertinent exercises. You should be prepared to pitch your screenplay on the first night of class. The course may be repeated until a first-draft screenplay is completed.
