Silver Clay Bead Workshop

Silver Clay Bead Workshop


10.00am - 5.00pm

 Learn how to make a stunning silver clay bead on this one-day workshop.

Silver metal clay is an amazing material! Made from recycled silver, mixed with organic binders and moisture, it can be textured, shaped, cut and moulded like clay, but, when it's fired, it reverts to become 99.9% fine silver again. This means that you don't need any prior jewellery making or silversmithing skills to enjoy this media and make beautiful, fine silver jewellery pieces!

On this fun and relaxed course, students will look at designing their bead, how to texture and embellish the surface and how to shape, dry and refine it. Beads will be kiln fired. You will then be able to complete polishing and adding an optional patina if you wish.

This workshop is suitable for those aged 16+.

10g of silver, materials, use of all tools and equipment required and refreshments are included in the course fee.
