Metal clay jewellery courses

Metal clay was developed in Japan and took the jewellery world by storm in the early 90s. Since then, metal clay workers and craft artists have proliferated and there are workshops the length and breadth of the UK that will show you the techniques required to make beautiful jewellery pieces using metal clay. Metal Clay is sometimes referred to as Art Clay Silver or Precious Metal Clay, but the process is the same. Fired in a kiln, with a torch, or in a home stove, metal clay jewellery allows crafters to create beautiful and intricate work - in a relatively short time!
