Northeast Ohio Metal Clay Guild
The North East Ohio Metal Clay Guild is a membership organization made up of people interested in practicing jewelry-making skills, especially in metal clay. We started out as an organization to learn more about using metal clay, but we’ve evolved into other jewelry and metal skills, from “traditional” to not so traditional. From time to time, we’ve tried fold-forming, chain mail, polymer, resins, wire-working, enameling, dichroic glass, kumihimo, etching, and more, but the first love of most of our members is still metal clay. We offer occasional workshops to our members first and then to the public.
We meet the third Sunday of most months, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Valley Arts Center, 155 Bell St, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022. Occasionally we have excursions or alter the meeting date or time.
Membership is $30 per year. Contact the president, Pat Hartman, or the treasurer, Carolyn Hoffart.
