About the Event
This is a 121 session bespoke workshop.
Tailored to you and cost £40ph plus your materials. (Silver clay is £17 per 7g). Normally students use 7g of silver clay for a 3 hour workshop or 14 g for a full day lasting 6 hours. We can plan the project in advance to make the best use of your time.
I can also include spot plating with 24K gold in my workshops (however, extra time will need to be allowed for this and if making pieces from scratch for the first time and I recommend covering this in a full day workshop). This would be an additional £10-15 per item to cover the 24K gold.
Below are some of the things I can cover in 121 workshops:
- Mould making
- Making 3D acorns and seed items (lump clay)
- Replica and oak leaves using art clay silver (lump clay)
- Embedded CZ gemstones
- Stone settings for cabochon stones or sea glass
- Rings using silver clay
- Silver stacking rings using silversmithing techniques
- Tiny silver clay shell embellishments and silver clay granulation (tiny silver balls)
- Granulation (silversmithing)
- Making replica leaves using art clay silver (clay paste)
- Sycamore seeds (with texture on both sides or one side) using art clay silver (clay paste)
- Fancy bail settings
- Fingerprint jewellery
- Making stud earrings (including soldering on the posts on the back)
- 24K Gold plating highlights using an electroplating pen
What you need to bring;
- An apron if you have one
- Closed toe shoes
- Hairband (to tie hair back while firing)
- Glasses if you wear them - there is a lot of detailed work.
