SILVERSMITHING & JEWELLERY
   

Silver Clay Jewellery
COURSE FULL

An introduction to the amazing qualities of silver clay. Learn how to design and create one or two pieces of unique silver jewellery. Choose from a selection of items, maybe a ring, a pendant or a pair of earrings, creating each piece to your own design and specifications. Lots of samples will be available for inspiration.

You will learn how to prepare and handle your silver clay, discovering the versatility of this medium through rolling, texturing and cutting techniques. You will be shown how to combine both clay and fireable stones, how to prepare your pieces for firing and how to professionally finish your work to a high standard. Perfect gifts for family and friends!

Your tutor will provide you with enough silver clay to make one item (or one pair of earrings) of jewellery. This cost is included in your course fee. If you wish to make more than one item, extra silver clay may be purchased from your tutor on the day.

If you wish to use fireable stones in your design this will be an extra cost which, depending on the amount used, can be discussed with your tutor. If you wish to have a trace chain or ear wires for your jewellery, an extra fee of approx £8, will be payable to the tutor on the day.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A light lunch will be provided.
