CB Wildflower Festival

Add to your calendar
Date: July 23, 8:00 am
Location: TBA
Details: The Art Studio of the Center for the Arts and Crested Butte Wildflower Festival team up to bring you a series of wildflower-inspired art classes to capture the essence of why Crested Butte is the Wildflower Capital of the World. Sign up for these classes through the Wildflower Festival's website or call 970-349-2571. Space is limited for all classes.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a crafting medium with the consistency of polymer clay, comprised of very small particles of silver. Using wildflowers as inspiration, Mary Tuck guides the class through molding and shaping the PMC into beautiful pendants, rings, and earrings that are then fired in a tabletop kiln. The binder in the PMC burns away, incredibly leaving 99% pure silver pieces of jewelry. Finish your jewelry by creating a patina, burnishing, and polishing. Instructor: Mary Tuck.

ABOUT MARY
"Creating is my life's breath," states Crested Butte artist Mary Tuck. Mary worked in the advertising/graphic arts industry in corporations such as Fluor Engineering, Hughes Engineering, the Los Angeles Times and other smaller agencies and print houses before becoming a teacher. After 20 years she retired from Los Angeles Unified School District as an adult educator of Commercial Art, Graphic Design, Advertising, and Illustration, and made her home here in Crested Butte. Living in these beautiful mountains inspire Mary every day, and she loves to create in many mediums such as Silver Clay and beading, acrylics, water color, silk dyes, color pencils, pastels, and ink. "If it stands still I paint it," says Mary, working on many different surfaces such as River Rocks, wood, silk, walls, pottery, canvas and paper – all a challenge and a joy. That is why her work is so eclectic. She is a lifetime student of the arts, and also the theatre as an actress/singer/ director. She is always evolving and creating, as it keeps her looking forward to the future.
If this class is sold out, please contact Program Director Melissa Mason at 970-596-5497 to check for cancellations and/or get on the waiting list.
