Metal Clay Classes

I have a full service studio in Silverton Oregon & host group classes as well as private lessons in Metal Clays. 

Private Lesson- $30/hr plus cost of metal clay & gem stones.


Materials vary in price and can be worked out in advance of private lesson. 

Use of tools, molds & studio are included in cost of class and lesson.


Kiln firing fee is $10 for those who create at home but just need firing in a kiln. Please contact me for more information.


I often show my own personal designs and creations in the photographs to advertise for classes. All of my proprietary jewelry designs are for sale.


I will support you to create your own personal pieces using commercial stamps & pre made molds & textures which are available for your use during classes.


My proprietary hand created textures & carvings will not be available for student use during classes. Thank you for understanding.

Michael Marx-

Michael J. Marx is a California-based PMC sculptor who specializes in unique and original works. He has been working with PMC since 2000 and believes that “Sanity is the Playground of the Unimaginative”. His work is currently being shown at multiple Northern California art galleries. Born in Massachusetts in 1969, he lived there for 18 years before becoming a born-again Californian in 1987. He currently resides in Alameda, California where he has lived since 2000. He primarily works in PMC with occasional forays into mixed-media and polymer clay.

Class Cancellation policy- If you sign up for a class and register online you may cancel for full refund 7 days prior to class. If you cancel after that for any reason there will be no refund for the class. Please know that I attempt to be flexible but the planning and purchasing of supplies is expensive. Things happen and life can be a big mystery. Unfortunately, it is too hard to run a small shoestring business without a policy. This policy is consistent with the industry standards. 

After several years of "playing" with Metal Clay and taking several classes myself, I took the dive and received my Level 1 certification from Art Clay World. I love bringing this art/craft to people who would otherwise think metal work is too scary. If you can handle a roller, cookie cutter & texture plates/molds you can create a lovely piece of jewelry that you can treasure. I have a couple of quick videos on youtube, in addition to the one above, you can access here for more information:
