Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a versatile material that consists of silver (or copper or bronze or gold) particles embedded in an organic binder. The material is malleable, and can be shaped, textured, or carved. Once dry, the PMC is fired with a torch or in a kiln, burning off the binder and allowing the silver particles to bind together, resulting in a stunning piece of 99.9% fine silver! In this class, you’ll learn to work with PMC3 (fine silver) to create a pair of earrings and a pendant, or two pendants (your choice). We’ll cover texturing, shaping, drying, sanding, firing, burnishing, adding a patina, and polishing. You will be provided with a supply list and resources to help you pursue this fun medium further in your home. The materials fee covers the cost of 16 grams of PMC3, use of class tools, a chain and earwires so you can wear your jewelry out the door.
