Kate Mckinnon and Silver Metal Clay. YAH!

I'm sitting here trying to think of what to tell you about today...and seriously I'm struggling to find the words!

Meeting Kate was like meeting up with an old friend!  Kate is an amazing, funny, intelligent and clear woman who lives very admirably within her own integrity! She has such an incredible understanding of the  Silver Clay medium and within the first few hours I learnt of lot of really simple and effective techniques. Kate has such a great way of bringing everything back to basics and I'm finding things that previously seemed challenging are now logical and totally accessible. Thank you Kate!

Kate with some of her divine pieces!

We started the day by going over the basics and creating a basic palate of silver clay/fine silver components that we will use to create our pieces, such as bead caps and head pins. Alot of this info is in Kate's book, Structural Metal Clay which I would highly recommend!
