In this one day course, you will learn the basics of silver clay, which will enable you to make your own jewellery (pure silver once fired). We will then fire and polish your work. 10g of silver clay will be provided within the course fee and this is usually enough to make 2 to 3 pieces depending on your design. This class generally runs for around 3.5 to 4 hours, but sometimes depends on how much finishing we need to do to your pieces. Silver clay can be fired by torch, on a gas hob or using a kiln, I will talk you through all 3 processes. I am currently in the process of changing class structure, so that I can offer more focused classes. These will feature classes in specifics such as texture work, embedding fireable stones, using sterling clay and more. Do ask if you have a specific technique you’d like to learn.
If you’ve never tried this medium it is the quickest way to achieve fine silver jewellery and the feel of it is pure alchemy. If you are into eco crafts, you could argue this is perfect as the silver is recycled from the car manufacturing industry.
