9.30am - 12.30pm morning session

2.00pm - 5.00pm afternoon session

6.30pm - 9.30pm evening session

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!

This three hour taster class will give you a great introduction into the 'magical material' that is silver clay. Learn how to prepare to make a piece of jewellery and how to texture, cut and shape your design. Students will also be taught how to torch fire their silver and how to polish it before taking their charms, pendants or earrings home to wear.

Sessions run on scheduled mornings, afternoons and evenings throughout the year and bespoke sessions are available by request. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange an additional 'taster' at no extra cost. 

This workshop is suitable for those aged 16+.

My workshop classes have a maximum of six places for polymer and just four for silver. This ensures that everyone gets plenty of support and help when they need it, and everyone can work at their own pace. There is no minimum number of students required before a class will run so please don't be concerned that once you have booked, your class might be cancelled. Once you have paid, I will send you a Course Information Sheet which is your confirmation that I have received your booking. It includes a detailed map and tells you what to expect on the course and what to bring so, look out for this in your inbox!

If you have any questions at all, please get in touch here or ring me, Jo, on 01566 784713.
