Courses

All courses include...

An information pack, silver clay to complete a number of pieces to take home an the day and light refreshments (but not lunch)

 

Silver Clay is a versatile material allowing you to design and create stunning, contemporary pieces. You can knead it, roll it  and shape it in any way you wish (just like modelling clay you used as a child). It is a fascinating material that gives you incredible creative freedom. It is simple to start making beautiful, unique jewellery with little or no experience and  with simple tools.

With experience it is possible to add Sterling Silver, stones and glass to your pieces before firing.

Firing is simple and can be done with a kiln, torch or even on a gas stove. Once fired the piece becomes Fine Silver
