About the Event

PLEASE NOTE due to Covid-19 social distancing and the necessary safety precautions and processes must be followed.  More information about this will be communicated prior to your attendance.

This introductory silver clay workshop is all about using silver clay to create beautiful, unique pieces of jewellery. 

Silver clay comes in a clay like form and is made up of recycled fine silver powder, an organic binder and water. It can be moulded and shaped like clay then fired.  The binder then burns away and your piece is transformed into a piece of fine silver jewellery. (Fine silver is composed of 99.9% pure silver, and it is a bit more expensive and better quality than sterling silver).

Silver clay offers a great introduction to silver jewellery making because you don't need to fork out for loads of tools or equipment and it can easily be done on your kitchen table at home.

This class is relaxed and has no more than 2 students in my garden studio. At the end of the day we will celebrate with a glass of bubbly while you wrap your items in the tissue paper and pillow boxes provided. You’ll leave with one to two totally unique pieces that you will have hand made that would make the perfect presents or you can keep them for yourself.
