Lennie Poitras is the Nicolaysen Art Museum & Discovery Center’s Artist-of-the-Month for February. She will present a workshop Feb. 27-28 on creating jewelry using Precious Metal Clay, according to Curator of Education Linda Lyman.
Poitras – a Rio Reward Certified Artisan – specializes in Precious Metal Clay, a finely powdered silver in an organic binder with water. The material can be worked like clay, which means it can be rolled, stamped and textured as well as combined with other materials to make a variety of items such as earrings, beads or rings. “When it is fired it becomes a solid piece of silver that is .995 pure,” Lyman said.
The cost of the workshop, which will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 27 and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 28, is $90 for museum members and $110 for non-members and supplies are included.
