Class Fee: $85.00, kit fee $20

Join artist Riki Schumacher as she comes to Gilding the Lily teaching one of her favorite pieces to create! With an adventuresome variety of materials, you will build layer upon layer of objects and texture to create a stunning focal piece. You will begin by working with sheet metal, cutting out the perfect size and shape. Then with lots of overseeing and instruction, you will use a torch to flood solder onto your metal. You will attach a bezel, which will encase prepared paper, like a picture, poem, or word, behind a beautiful frame, finishing off the top layer. This gives the piece a wonderful "shadow box" feel, encasing a beautiful thought or art. You will drill, add eyelets, and wire as you make the birdies sing with delight! Bring an egg for the bird nest on the twig (like a pearl), as well as chain and a clasp to finish a stunning necklace. You will love the engineering Riki has in store for you in this jam packed class!
