Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a crafting medium with the consistency of polymer clay, composed of very small particles of silver. Artist 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 work by creating a patina, burnishing, polishing, and finally assembling the silver into a wearable piece of jewelry. Perfect for last minute, handmade gifts!

During each major break in the Crested Butte Community School calendar, the Trailhead offers full-day Art Camps where students can pursue hands-on projects and activities to ignite their creativity and imagination. These camps are designed with kids and parents in mind. Children are given the time and space to create and explore the mediums in a supportive environment. Camps are filled with fun, friends, art & play.
