Craftworx Box Linked Chain by Tracey Spurgin
Craftwor Box Link Chain

 

Linked In Chains – Intermediate/Advanced level

Linking components into a chain with metal clay is easy when you know how but sizing these for the correct finished length requires a little more thought to account for the shrinkage. Learn how to texture both sides of the links and create seamless joints.

This workshop will show you how to make 3 different styles of chains from the simple round links to the more complex construction chain links. These will be demonstrated by the tutor. You will then be invited to select your chosen method and design with tutor support all the way to completion. Create the correct proportions and dimensions to make a toggle bar and clasp fastening that functions correctly.

50 g of clay will be supplied which should be plenty to make a single bracelet over the course of the day.

Included in the day:-

  • introduce the tools and equipment, what alternatives are suitable
  • preparing and handling the clay
  • double textures
  • making chains
  • construction
  • drying times and temperatures
  • refinement methods
  • firing methods and procedures
  • polishing techniques

and much more with further samples on display to inspire you.
