Our Mission

Metals Guild hopes to bring a more tangible and interactive art experience to the CFCC student community, a goal achieved by enrichment opportunities outside the scope of the Metals classroom, and extending the metal working experience from the confines of the classroom to our local community. Metals Guild will encourage members to participate in fundraising and community outreach events such as demonstrations and hands on short workshops. These events will be empowering to its members and spread enthusiasm for craftsmanship, as well as bring an awareness to the art of metalsmithing to aspiring and active participants in the community.

Stone dealer here!

Anne Kennedy will be at my house Saturday the 21st from 10-2:30 selling her wonderful cabochon stones! She has polished stones such as Carnelian, Labradorite, Jaspers of all kinds, Petrified wood, fossils... the list goes on and on! Her prices run from around $5 up to $200 or so. There should be a little something for everyone. And if you just want to come drool over stones, chit chat and munch on tidbits then join us!

More Polymer

Thought I'd share some more interesting polymer clay stuff. These items were made by Barbara Briggs. First are embellished clasps, then adorned artist brushes and clay working tools.

And finally Celie Fago ROCKS in my opinion!

Rings made of Bronzeclay and polymer clay and a silver ring embellished with polymer clay.

Polymer Play Date!

Necklace by Cynthia Toops

Monday night the 23rd we'll have "Polymer Play Date" in the Metals studio from 5:30 until the guards kick us out. Bring some polymer clay, clay working tools (if you already have some). A mat to work on would be good too, but we'll use butcher paper or something if need be.
